Yvonne Horn’s new book 100 Thing To Do In Sonoma County Before You Die comes out April first. It’s the latest offering in Reedy Press’ popular 100 Thing To do In ….. guidebook series. While not a guidebook in the traditional sense, with Yvonne, a third-generation county resident as “insider” guide, the book invites a nooks-and crannies exploration of the entire county. Harness up and zip through a redwood canopy, visit all 21 California missions in one day, get buried up to your chin in a bath of hot cedar shavings – with 97 more items to go.
In other news, Copperfield’s Books hosts Yvonne in an online PowerPoint event that tells the tales of what it was like to research and write the book during the onslaught of COVID on April 29, at 7 p.m. Registration is free at www.copperfieldsbooks.com/event-listings.
