Video Chat Tonight with the Editors of Greenhorns!

You may have seen the promotion on our Facebook and Twitter feeds for Thursday night's "Virtual Book Tour" with Greenhorns editors Zoë Ida Bradbury, Paula Manalo, and Severine von Tscharner Fleming, and perhaps you were wondering, "What the heck is a Virtual Book Tour?"

Well, wonder no more!

A Virtual Book Tour is just like going to see an author in person at a bookstore or other venue — except you don't have to find a sitter, drive, park, or even put on pants! All you have to do is turn on your computer (no special equipment needed, though if you have a webcam you can turn it on, and the author will be able to see you as well – in which case, you might want to put on those pants!).

Just like a "real world" author event, you'll get a chance to watch a presentation, see a demonstration, or hear a reading. In this case, Zoë, Paula, and Severine — from their farms in Oregon, California, and New York, respectively – will talk about how their book came together and how they found the contributing essayists (at least some of whom we hope will be in the audience!), as well as the trials, tribulations, joys, and sorrows of being a beginning farmer and the camaraderie found within the Greenhorns and New Farmer Movements. A slide show of images from Severine's feature-length documentary film The Greenhorns will run in the background.

You'll also have the opportunity to chat with other members of the audience and ask the authors questions.

So pop a bowl of corn and settle in in front of your computers for an entertaining and informative hour with Greenhorns, Thursday, May 24, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Eastern time. Follow the link below to RSVP, and we'll see you there!
