Sunday afternoon, I will be hosting author Doug Fine here at the Firedoglake Book Salon. We will be asking him questions about the subject matter of Hemp Bound: Dispatches From the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution. Last year, we had him here to discuss the paperback edition of his book on the medical cannabis growing scene in California, Too High to Fail.
His new book concentrates on non-medicinal and recreational uses of hemp, in a variety of industrial applications. Having read all four of Doug’s books, I regard this as his most important.
Here is an hour-long presentation on the book he gave at The Booksmith, in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury District, around April 23rd. I shopped at The Booksmith on December 21st, while Christmas shopping on my first trip to that historic area since October, 1968.
