First Thursday:Buddy Levy at Fettuccine Forum

by

Buddy Levy does more in one week than many of us do in a year... or ever. He worked as a comic stuntman in Warren Miller ski films. He has taken adventures through Argentina, Borneo, Greenland, Iceland, the Philippines, Mexico, Morocco and Europe. He has written several books, including Geronimo: Leadership Lessons of an American Warrior, River of Darkness: Francisco Orellana's Legendary Voyage of Death and Discovery Down the Amazon, and Conquistador: Hernan Cortes, King Montezuma, and the Last Stand of the Aztecs. He starred in the History Channel series Brad Meltzer's Decoded (coincidentally, another of the show's stars, Christine McKinley, will read from her book, Physics for Rock Stars, at Rediscovered Bookshop the same night at 6 p.m.).

On First Thursday, Levy will travel from his home in northern Idaho, landing in Boise City Council Chambers at City Hall with a presentation called "Get in the Helicopter: Lead a Life of Adventure by Going with your Gut and Taking Risks," which is about how people can capitalize on their unique callings and intuitions.

Rediscovered Books will host a book signing with Levy at 4:30 p.m. before his presentation.
