We got to hang out (and sweat) a little at the end of the day after his talk and a long day of discussion. He's a friendly personable guy.
Bryon's talk and reading will be on his damn-it-all move to early-90s post-Soviet Russian, his life there, adjusting and banyas--the Russian equivalent of saunas. He spent a fair amount of time here traveling around and, while he did, his favorite passtime was visiting Russian banyas, big and small, public and private.
Right now he's on the West Coast. His website has the latest reading times and locations: With Light Steam
Here in Portland he will speak at the Guildhall of CSE (Community Supported Everything) 1626 NE Alberta Street from 5 to 6:30 pm. There will be a group walk to a community soak and sauna following this at Common Ground Wellness Coop: 5010 NE 33rd.
We have much to learn! I'm looking forward to it and getting my hands on his book.
