Meet Darren Speece at Green Apple Books

It's that time of year, perfect for staying indoors and curling up with a good book.

Head to Green Apple Books on the Park. It's located at 9th and Lincoln. You can meet Darren Speece, author of "Defending Giants" Thursday night at 6 p.m.

He'll discuss his non-fiction work. It's about non-violent efforts in environmental politics, particularly the movement to save redwood trees in Northern California.

If this book isn't for you, don't worry. The store did 115 events this year, so check in with them regularly.
