In 2011, writer Philip Connors recounted his experiences as a wilderness lookout in southwestern New Mexico in the award-winning field narrative, Fire Season.  In a new memoir, All the Wrong Places, A Life Lost and  Found, published this month by Norton, Connors reveals the family tragedy that set him on a journey of  discovery and introspection that eventually led to the solace of that 50-foot tower.  

Connors signs copies of the new book on February 19 at Bookworks in Albuquerque and on February 20 at Collected Works in Santa Fe.
