Book Reading with Christopher Shaw

August 29, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Join us for an intimate book reading with famous North Country author, Christopher Shaw, on Tuesday, August 29th at 7 pm at the Log House Restaurant.

Christopher Shaw grew up in Schenectady, New York, and attended Bard College for two years. In the seventies, he lived in the woods, guided, and worked odd jobs.  Later, he edited Adirondack Life magazine, and, while there, wrote numerous reviews in the New York Times Book Review and the Washington Post Book World.  In the nineties, he freelanced and wrote fiction, publishing widely in such places like the New York Times, Capital Region, Outside, New England Review, and through radio commentaries and the show Norther Voices on North Country Public Radio. Later he took his experience of living and working as a guide in the Adirondacks to Guatemala and Chiapas, Mexico, as the binational watershed of the free-flowing Usumacinta River underwent dam threats and political and environmental upheaval.  The result was Sacred Monkey River: A Canoe Trip with the Gods (W.W. Norton, 2000), which the Washington Post called, “a magnificent achievement.” 

“Chris Shaw has long been a powerful literary voice for the North Country, and is widely respected as an author, editor, and educator.  He has been a major inspiration for my own evolution as an author and science journalist over the years, and I have always found him to be dependable, supportive, and skilled as an advisor as well as a master craftsman of the written word.  Simply put, when Shaw writes, people around here take notice.” – Dr. Curt Stager, Still Waters, Deep Future, Your Atomic Self, etc.
