1st Thursday: Rediscovered Books and Record Exchange 

Books galore

Don't miss out on First Thursday's literary offerings, either. Two authors featured this week have the western wilds in common. Journalist C.B. Bernard visits Rediscovered Books at 6 p.m. to give a presentation on his book, Chasing Alaska: A Portrait of the Last Frontier Then and Now. Part memoir, part investigative journalism, the book explores the life of his distant relative Capt. Joe Bernard, an intrepid Arctic explorer.

A few blocks over, The Record Exchange is hosting the launch for local author Steve Bunk's new book, Goliath Staggered: How the People of Highway 12 Conquered Big Oil, at 6 p.m. Goliath tells the story of grassroots efforts that helped keep megaloads out of the Clearwater-Lochsa Wild and Scenic River corridor--environmental and community issues that frequently make the pages of Boise Weekly. Live music from Hillfolk Noir and free beer from Payette Brewing Company round out the RX party.
