An engaging and practiced speaker, C.B. Bernard is available for in-person or Skype gatherings and for workshops or writing classes. Want to meet the author, pick his brain about Alaska, writing, fly fishing, or anything else–or just hear him read aloud and get your copy of Chasing Alaska signed? Join him for one of these upcoming events. If none is scheduled in your area and you’d like to change that, let him know.
