Chris Dombrowski, fly-fishing author, to visit Steamboat
Bud Werner Memorial Library presents an evening with Chris Dombrowski, the writer who Outside Magazine calls "the fly fishing poet." Dombrowski will talk about his new book, "Body of Water: A Sage, a Seeker, and the World's Most Alluring Fish," at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9 in Library Hall.
Fly fishing guide to the likes of David James Duncan and Jim Harrison, Dombrowski is also an award-winning author. "Body of Water" is about the journey that led him to the Bahamas, its most elusive and highly prized creature, the bonefish, and to David Pinder, the legendary fisherman who created an industry. Part fishing hagiography, part ecology and part elegy, "Body of Water" is a tribute to a man, a place and a particularly beguiling fish, written in prose as immersive and crystalline as the waters of the Caribbean itself.
Dombrowski's poetry and nonfiction have been published in leading journals and magazines. Born in Michigan, he earned his master of fine arts degree from the University of Montana and lives in Missoula, where he is a fly-fishing guide and director of the 406 Writers' Workshop and the Beargrass Writing Retreat.
At this Library Author Series event, books will be available for sale and signing courtesy of Off the Beaten Path Bookstore. For more information, visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
