It's late summer and I settled the big trial I was preparing for, so I am all about hanging out. That's not exactly what this book is about, but we will all have to read it to learn more.
For now, let's all share the opening sentences of the books we are reading this week, or the books that captured our attention.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
From Deep Hanging Out:
Several years ago, I was invited by members of the Kashaya Pomo tribe of Sonoma County to be a guest at their annual acorn harvest celebration.-- from the Introduction to Deep Hanging Out: Wanderings and Wonderment in Native California by Malcolm Margolin (2021, Heyday Books). Malcolm Margolin has long been a fixture in California's Native American community. Although he is not Native American, Margolin has been “deep hanging out” – immersing himself in an informal, social way – in California’s Indian country since the 1970s.
Freda at Freda's Voice hosts another teaser event on Fridays. Participants share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of the book they are reading -- or from 56% of the way through the audiobook or ebook. Please visit Freda's Voice for details and to leave a link to your post.
