A Sideways Look at Clouds


Author of "A Sideways Look at the Clouds" Maria Mudd Ruth shares her fascination with clouds. She has a book event tonight (see below).

A Sideways Look at Clouds (Mountaineers Books) is the story of Maria Mudd Ruth’s quite accidental infatuation with and education about the clouds above. When she moved to the soggy Northwest a decade ago, Ruth assumed that locals would know everything there was to know about clouds, in the same way they talk about salmon, tides, and the Seahawks. Yet in her first two years of living in Olympia, Washington, she never heard anyone talk about clouds – only the rain. A Sideways Look at Clouds is a natural history, filled with intrigue and humor, of our ubiquitous yet fascinating clouds.

Book Event:

  • Thursday, November 2 @ 7:30 PM
  • Powell's Books on Hawthorne
