He has two more appearances in Cascadia in the next couple of days before he gets on the Amtrak and heads to California:

Monday, August 12th Habib’s featured reader at the North End Forum at the Wedgwood Ale House, 8515 35th NE, Seattle. 8:30PM.

Wednesday, August 13th, he will hike to the top of Desolation Peak, where Jack Kerouac was a fire lookout in 1956.

Thursday, August 15th, he’ll discuss the Beat poets from a Moroccan perspective at the North Cascades Institute’s Environmental Learning Center near Sedro Wooley, WA. 7PM.
