A group of intrepid hikers joined me on Saturday to launch the Great Tome of Fantastic and Wondrous Places. We walked through the bay-scented woods, down the hill from Cowell College at UCSC and into the Pogonip.

The Stone Garden was awash with golden sycamore leaves. We had a lovely reading from the book, a selection of pistachio-cardamom shortbread, grapes and chai tea, a prize drawing and, finally, a book signing.

We even hailed a few passing hikers and gave them cookies and book post cards.

Here are a few pictures of the festivities:
