McMillan and Schmidt featured at Nov. 8 reading





CLEARLAKE – Wild About Books is planning one fabulous afternoon with two great authors on Saturday, Nov. 8.

Lake County Poet Laureate Mary McMillan and RV Schmidt will read their latest works beginning at 2 p.m

McMillan's latest collection of poetry, “This Wanting, has been in the making for sometime and includes recovery, spirituality and feminism. McMillan is a shining light for the creative word in our county and her book “This Wanting” is a great example of the kaleidoscope of talent she has in writing.

Schmidt will read from his latest work, “Single Tree.”

Clive Matson, author of “Let the Crazy Child Write,” says Schmidt “is a born storyteller of the outdoors, wild animals, road trips, heartwarming coincidences and salt-of-the-earth relationships, all set in layer upon layer of natural western beauty, carefully observed and beautifully described.”

“At root is deep wisdom evolved from our rough and penchant frontier ethos plus Schmidt's boundless acceptance of life. All you need is a quiet evening, a comfortable chair, and a fire in the hearth. Hard to come by nowadays, but 'Single Tree' will create that wool blanket and those warm crackling logs in your heart."

Join Wild About Books in welcoming these two great authors. Listen to them read their stories and poems in their own words, a treat for the mind and soul. A book signing will follow.

Wild About Books is located at 14290 Olympic Drive in Clearlake, next door to Lisa's clothing store.
