Talk: Reading Nature's Signs, Mar. 21, 6pm, Labyrinth Bookstore

Sounds like a very interesting talk coming up at Labyrinth Bookstore on Nassau Street. Read below or follow the link to learn more.

Clues and Patterns from Puddles to the Sea
Tuesday, March 21st @ 6PM
-----------------------------------------------------------------
We invite you to come to Labyrinth to learn how to read the sea like a Viking and interpret ponds like a Polynesian—with a little help from the “natural navigator”! 

In his eye-opening books The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs andThe Natural Navigator, Tristan Gooley helped readers reconnect with nature by finding direction from the trees, stars, clouds, and more. Now, he turns his attention to our most abundant—yet perhaps least understood—resource. Learn how to:

•Find north using puddles  •Forecast the weather from waves  •Decode the colors of ponds  •Spot dangerous water in the dark  •Decipher wave patterns on beaches, and more!


Tristan Gooley is the New York Times–bestselling author of The Natural NavigatorThe Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs, and How to Read Water. His passion for the subject of natural navigation stems from his hands-on experience. He has led expeditions in five continents, climbed mountains in Europe, Africa, and Asia, sailed small boats across oceans, and piloted small aircraft to Africa and the Arctic. He is the only living person to have both flown solo and sailed single-handedly across the Atlantic, and he is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation and the Royal Geographical Society. Prior to setting up The Natural Navigator School, Gooley gained extensive experience in the travel industry, and he is currently Vice Chairman of Trailfinders. 

Free and open to the public.
