Alan Minskoff - The Idaho Traveler

Saturday, November 2, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

In 1976, Alan Minskoff embarked on a tour of Idaho to explore the future of the state’s small-towns and record what was special about them in the voices of residents and unique characters and in his own intuitive perceptions about rooting one’s identity to place. Forty-plus years later, he returns to those towns to record in flashbacks and new impressions his love for the towns, the old buildings, the people, the food, and, especially, the best sources for pie. As a poet, journalist, teacher, and grandfather, he offers in The Idaho Traveler a colorful historical and culinary tour of Idaho, revisiting the miles of contemplative two-lane blacktop that tie one town to the next. From Paris to Oakley to Idaho City to Wallace, this book is a traveling companion to experience our wonderful state.

Join us as we rediscover Idaho together with Alan at Rediscovered Books - Boise. 

Alan will be signing books afterwards.
