We're Getting On (Flatmancrooked)
A launch party for the new novel by James Kaelan, We're Getting On! This is the kickoff for a "zero-emissions book tour," on which the author will be touring from Los Angeles to Vancouver, all on bicycle. The book is also biodegradable, and the cover is made out of a specialty paper that contains spruce tree seeds. You can plant the book and it becomes, literally, the very thing books are made of.
"James Kaelan is a fine, intelligent writer. We’re Getting On is so elegantly and imaginatively written that it should be a significant debut.” --Ha Jin
James Kaelan is the author of the novel We're Getting On, which grows into a tree, and which he's touring this summer by bicycle.

THIS EVENT WAS RECORDED LIVE AT SKYLIGHT BOOKS JULY 2, 2010.
