Author Dennis Dauble Visits Klindt's With His Latest Title, Bury Me With My Fly Rod, Saturday, June 8 at 4PM
Bury Me With My Fly Rod, is Dennis Dauble’s latest collection of stories. With this new title, Dauble leads readers through a “spoke of the wheel” tour of northeastern Oregon trout streams. He battles the “Mike Tyson” of Couse Creek, hikes into Spirit Mountain, and soaks flies near his cabin in the Umatilla River canyon. Regale in tales about grasshoppers on a string, beaver scat, dogs that herd trout, and how not to teach your honey to cast. Swing a fly for steelhead on the Columbia and Deschutes rivers, and chase “Brownies” on the Isle of Skye. Learn what makes a perfect rod and the secret of huckleberry cream pie.
Dennis Dauble is a retired fisheries scientist and award-winning author of the natural history guidebook, Fishes of the Columbia Basin, in addition to two previous short story collections about the fishing experience: The Barbless Hook and One More Last Cast. Whether through humor, wit, or self-reflection, his personal accounts of a day on the water will entertain and inform.
Klindt's Booksellers Joins with Waldo to Create Summertime Fun with Local Scavenger Hunt During the Month of July!
July 2019 — Where’s Waldo? In The Dalles, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs will be hiding in twenty-five local businesses throughout our community this July. Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in our community.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in The Dalles!” passport at Klindt’s. Your passport contains the names of all the participating sites. Get your passport stamped or signed for each Waldo you spot. And to make things a little more challenging, Waldo’s nemesis, Odlaw, will also be hiding in Klindt’s Booksellers. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing on August 1, with the top prize being a copy of Where’s Waldo? Destination: Everywhere!, a tribute to Waldo’s many decades of wandering.
Martin Handford’s collections of crowd scenes took the world by storm in the late 1980s, and since then they have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves. There are now over 72 million Waldo books in print worldwide, and they’ve been translated into over thirty languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo.
There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. For more information about hunting for Waldo in The Dalles, call, email, or stop by Klindt’s Booksellers.
Klindt’s Booksellers will host a party for Waldo seekers on Thursday, August 1st at 3pm. Drawing will be held at 4pm.
