 Author John Lurie will present on his book, Canoeing with José - the true tale of journalist Lurie's trip up the Mississippi to retrace the epic journey in the 1935 classic Canoeing with the Cree. Adrift after a divorce, Lurie invites the troubled young man to join him on a two-thousand mile canoe trip from Breckinridge, MN to the Hudson Bay. Faced with plagues of mosquitoes, extreme weather, suspicious law enforcement officers, tricky border crossings, and José’s preference for Kanye West over the great outdoors, the trip becomes an odyssey of self-discovery.
