Sherwood Nation has been amusing and provoking much discussion — who knew seceding would be such a popular idea? — with its multifaceted look at a city (Portland, Oregon) dealing with the effects of a very long term drought.
The Reader’s Guide pulls together some post-publication interviews with Ben as well as reading group questions — we expect to add more over time as the book incites more conversation — and some of Ben’s photos from an inspiring trip to Brazil.
You can read an excerpt of the book, listen to Seattle’s KUOW: If Portland Collapsed, How Would The City Fare? (interview on “The Record”), and more here and of course: download the new Reader’s Guide and Companion.
