Home Waters: A Chronicle of Family and a River (A Program with Author John N. Maclean)

Community Event

On Tuesday, January 11th at 6:30 PM, The Book Stall is delighted to present a live online program with author and journalist John N. Maclean. He’ll be discussing his new book, Home Waters: A Chronicle of Family and a River. In the spirit of his father’s modern classic A River Runs Through It, Maclean shares a beautiful meditation on fly fishing and life along Montana’s Blackfoot River, where four generations of his family have fished, bonded, and drawn timeless lessons from its flashing waters. Mr. Maclean will be in conversation with bookseller Jon Grand.

“The prose in Home Waters, which is often transporting, flows with a shadow-cast grace. … The best word I can think of to describe Home Waters also happens to be the Maclean’s family word: beautiful.” — Field & Stream

“Graceful and compelling. … Greatly expands what we might already know about Montana, fly fishing and the meaning of family. … This is a great book.” — Chicago Tribune
