Gail Storey’s hilariously harrowing memoir, I Promise Not To Suffer: A Fool for Love Hikes the Pacific Crest Trail, won the Barbara Savage Miles from Nowhere Award and is forthcoming from Mountaineers Books in Spring 2013. She’s the author of two novels, The Lord’s Motel and God’s Country Club, as well as a book of poetry and numerous pieces in magazines. Priscilla Stuckey is a writer, scholar, editor, and Earth-advocate with a passion for reconnecting people with nature. Since 2005 she has taught humanities, spirituality, ecology and feminist theory in the graduate programs of Prescott College (Ariz.). When she lived in Oakland (Calif.), a creek that ran through her property inspired the start of the Butters Canyon Conservancy, a neighborhood-based land trust for which she served as founder and first president. She is now active in the local and international movement to extend legal rights to nature. She lives in Boulder, Colo. Learn more at: http://ravenbookstore.com/events.php#052913
