We have teamed up with the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance to bring you Ruby McConnell as part of the Reader Meet Writer event series. Ruby will be talking with us about her book, Ground Truth, and answering your questions. Ruby is one of many authors we’ll be bringing to your living room as part of this series. Ruby McConnell's newest book Ground Truth: A Geological Survey of a Life will be released by Overcup Press in April 2020. McConnell is a registered geologist and outdoor adventurer who writes about nature, art, and culture with a particular emphasis on the intersection of the environment and human experience. Ruby McConnell morphs natural history and memoir to portray the forces and landscapes that have helped shape a region and the people who live in it. Challenging the notions of the region, McConnell explores the Northwest and the decades-long struggle over resources since the cataclysmic eruption of Mt. St. Helens in May 1980.
