Here is Where I Walk – Leslie Carol Roberts

Join us for a reading from a new eco-memoir by Leslie Carol Roberts, Here is Where I Walk: Episodes From a Life in the Forest.

Leslie Carol Roberts turns her daily walks in San Francisco’s Presidio into revelations of deeper meaning, reflecting on her travels as well as her home life as the single mother of two. In this finely crafted eco-memoir, each place provides Leslie with exactly the scaffolding needed to survive, with nature serving as the tonic. Here Is Where I Walk provides a vivid answer to how we can find our place, not only in nature but within ourselves and the world we walk.
