McNally Robinson Booksellers and RMB | Rocky Mountain Books present Colin Harris and his new bestselling book Take Me Outside: Running Across the Canadian Landscape that Shapes Us. Hosted by Joanne Kelly.
Join us to hear about Colin's cross-Canada run to inspire students and teachers to get outside and experience the benefits and beauty of nature.
Take Me Outside is Colin’s story of spending nine months running from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Victoria, British Columbia, visiting over 80 schools along the way to engage with 20,000 students about the importance of spending time outside learning, playing, and exploring in the Canadian landscape. With one of the biggest and best backyards in the world, people across Canada are spending the vast majority of their time inside. Yet, our identity as Canadians has always been rooted in our relationship with the outdoors. This wildly entertaining book not only recounts what it’s like to run across the world’s second-largest country but also implores readers of all ages to reignite their connection with the natural world.
