Marketing and Events Manager at Lake Forest Park
Zak's eclectic tastes include literary fiction, science and nature writing, cookbooks, science fiction, rhetoric and linguistics, geography, and memoir. His favorite books are well-crafted and full of heart, with an offbeat or wry humor and a keen sense of wonder. He books author events and handles marketing for Third Place Books.
The premise is as misleading as it is wacky; but beneath the surface, this series of philosophical essays represents nature writing of the highest order: probing, intellectual, alert, funny, and astonishing. His tone is blithe, his style loose and poetic. He doesn't write sentences so much as created little idea nests.
It's not for everyone - just someone a little eccentric, and full of wonder.
