alt+library book club: A Field Guide to Getting Lost

Delicious springtime has come around again and we are beginning to plan our second annual Midtown ramble in conjunction with the alt+library book club. May’s selection is A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit so we’d like to share the best places in Sacramento you’ve found when you were lost (intentionally or accidentally).  Our parameters are smaller this year: between H & P and between 20th & 28th. Not familiar with that area? Go wander now! Find what you can find, something that delights or astonishes you. Be a tourist in your own hometown. Our walk will be Wednesday May 21st – start place to be shared soon. Please email your location suggestions to [masked] so we can construct a route.

    Wandering and walking as group, sharing memories about places and the experiences we had, lovely way to pass the evening in the company of other readers!

    Thanks to everyone who showed up last night! I had a great walk. Interestingly, came across this article today in my news feed:

    the walk sounds fun but I need some family time tonight. Past few weeks have been ridiculous busy. After 70ish pages of A Field Guide to Getting Lost I'm afraid I got bored and read Divergent instead. That's not a reflection on the quality of A Field Guide--it's lovely! Just an indication of what my fried, fried brain can handle right now. Enjoy!

    Also, there's YLI Hall at N & 27th . I go to an Ecstatic Dance class there and there and it's an interesting place-

    Around 21st and N, nothing tells the story better than the trees. The thin, quick-growing Trees of Heaven reflect a former Chinese presence. The Yews, Cedars and Palms, plants that were de riguer for any freshly painted white Victorian in the ,fifties.In backyards, possible to still see a Quercus Lobata that native Americans might have planted

    Just finished the book. Next, I'll be out looking for that mysterious sweet spot in magical midtown. :)
