Join Filmmaker Ward Serrill (THE HEART OF THE GAME, THE BOWMAKERS) in the release of his dynamic memoir, To Crack the World Open – Alaska, Solitude, and a Dog Named Woody. Ticket price includes a first edition book, signed by the author, a reading and on-stage interview (plus other doggish treats!)
From a remote cabin in the rugged rainforest of the Alaskan wilderness, where the untamed landscape tumbles into the ocean, a remarkable yellow Labrador retriever named Woody helped an exile from corporate America seek a fierce freedom. An extraordinary journey of the heart and soul from award-winning filmmaker and director of The Heart of the Game, To Crack the World Open is a poignant, adventure-driven Alaskan story of self-discovery, with one of life’s most essential relationships—a man and his dog—at its heart.
“A compelling and poetically written memoir about a young man running from corporate America and the impact of a neglectful and painful upbringing. Living alone with his wise and loyal dog in the remote wilds of Alaska, he contemplates, interrogates and confronts the painful places within, and ultimately understands the transformative journey of his life.” - Anna Quinn, bestselling author of The Night Child
“Will find a place on the shelf alongside such Alaska classics as Jonathan Raban’s Passage to Juneau and Rockwell Kent’s Wilderness." - Lynn Schooler, Author, Photographer & Alaskan wilderness guide.
