It's easy to miss the great outdoors before everything turned gray, icy and cold. That's where literature comes in. On Tuesday, Jan. 19, the Selway-Bitterroot Frank Church Foundation kicks off a new reading series devoted to Idaho outdoors and conservation. Richard Holm, author of Bound for the Backcountry, will perform a reading at Rediscovered Books at 7 p.m. His book features the history of Idaho's isolated airstrips, telling stories of homesteaders, boaters, hikers and pilots with more than 1,000 black-and-white photographs. Each reading will feature a local author specializing in Idaho's best asset: the outdoors. The next reading takes place on Tuesday, March 15 at 7 p.m. and features McCall author Kathy Deinhardt Hill, with an excerpt from Spirits of the Salmon River.
