Watershed/ Fibershed Presentation in April 2012

Fibershed& sitiotiempopress Co-presentation by Rebecca Burgess and Destiny Kinal.

In April, 2012, the Fibershed Project and our press hosted a cooperative event and reading on the subject of bioregionalism, fibershed, and appropriate technology. The events were held partnership with two stores, Green Arcade Bookstore in San Francisco, on April 26th and at A Verb for Keeping Warm, the fiber center in Oakland, on April 15 at 3pm. Rebecca Burgess spoke about The Fibershed Project she founded in West Marin; Destiny Kinal talked about The Third Wave of bioregionalism and the unique approach to community organizing that occurs in each discreet watershed. Both women observed that creating local capacity for fiber production and dyeing creates community in turn. Burgess sees Fibershed as a key organizing principle in creating commerce inside and outside of the community, part of a sustainable way of life.

Destiny Kinal discusses her work on "Off the Page" August, 2011

Bill Jaker, host of Off the Page says: "The 19th century realm of perfumes and silkworms is the backdrop and the countryside of France and Pennsylvania the setting for "Burning Silk", a detailed and sensuous historical novel by Destiny Kinal."

Recent Events in Pennsylvania

Doylestown Bookshop Reading Left to right: Katherine Ashe; Treebeard (David Chamberlain); and Destiny Kinal.

Destiny recently visited and presented her work in Bucks County, Pennsylvania where the book was inspired and where it is set in the early 19th century. The July 16 program at the Mercer, a living history museum in Doylestown, was called Writing the Delaware, and celebrated the opening of Mercer’s new wing. The readings included Kinal, along with Treebeard, a Lenape medicine man of the Big Horn band, author of Grandfather Speaks, Lenape stories and history. The third reader was Catherine Ashe, playwright and screenwriter, who read from a piece she wrote for Celeste Holme, Martha Washington at Valley Forge, telling wives of fellow officers how she met George. Ashe has just completed a four volume novel series on Simon de Montfort, the father of Democracy and the Parliamentary system. The three authors also appeared the following afternoon at the Doylestown Bookstore (see picture above).
