Wednesday, July 19: Roger W. Thompson joins us for a reading from his new travel memoir, We Stood Upon Stars. 7pm.
We Stood Upon Stars: Finding God in Lost Places is a collection of Thompson’s poetic and honest essays, spiritual reflections, and often hilarious stories, stemming from his many years of expeditions throughout the American West. For Thompson, there is as much beauty and wonder in the actual journey—the searching—as in the brilliance of the destination.
Roger W. Thompson is an entrepreneur, collaborator, adventurer, and writer. He has spent his career building innovative businesses and nonprofit organizations. In addition to creating the first mission tourism resort in Haiti with the Hands and Feet Project, he’s produced surf films, built skate parks, and outfitted adventure trips. Alongside his wife, he travels, surfs, snowboards, and fly-fishes—and is teaching his two young sons to do the same. When Thompson’s not on a road trip, you’ll find him in southern California.
