Obi Kaufmann Book Signing at Kepler’s


Saturday, June 11 | 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Join Obi Kaufmann for an in-person signing of The Coasts of California at Kepler’s Literary Foundation.

In his signature style fusing science with art and pure poetic reverie, painter-poet and naturalist Obi Kaufmann presents an epic new work, The Coasts of California. With hundreds of watercolor maps and illustrations, Kaufmann invites a full immersion into the astonishingly varied natural worlds that hug California’s shoreline, as well as an expansive, detailed walk down the California Coastal Trail.

Like all of his books, The Coasts of California is as much a guide as an inspiration. Join Kepler’s for a special event with the author as we explore not just the land around us, famous worldwide for its wildness and diversity, but also as we learn a sense of scale here, a sense of self, and how to see.

About the Speaker

Obi Kaufmann

Obi Kaufmann

Growing up in the East Bay as the son of an astrophysicist and a psychologist, Obi Kaufmann spent most of high school practicing calculus and breaking away on weekends to scramble around Mount Diablo and map its creeks, oak forests, and sage mazes. Into adulthood, he would regularly journey into the mountains, spending more summer nights without a roof than with one. He is the author of The California Field Atlas (2017, #1 San Francisco Chronicle Best Seller), The State of Water: Understanding California’s Most Precious Natural Resource (2019), and The Forests of California: A California Field Atlas (2020), all published by Heyday. When he is not backpacking, you can find the painter-poet at home in the East Bay, posting trail paintings at his handle @coyotethunder on Instagram. His website is coyoteandthunder.com.
