Roz-SavageRoz Savage, world-record-setting ocean rower and environmental campaigner, is back in the Bay Area to promote her new book, Stop Drifting, Start Rowing: One Woman’s Search for Happiness and Meaning Alone On the Pacific. The event will be at Pier 39’s Bay Theater on Thursday, June 12. More info here.

Stop-DriftingRoz will talk about her adventures rowing solo across the world’s oceans—particularly her bid to become the first woman to row solo 8,000 miles across the Pacific. After a failed attempt in 2007, when her boat capsized 3 times in 24 hours during a storm, she set out again the following year from the Golden Gate Bridge. To a backdrop of photographs, maps and videos, Roz will tell the story of her epic crossing and share her insights on happiness, meaning, and the environmental challenges that face our oceans in the 21st century.

I’ve interviewed Roz several times, and expect this to be a fun and inspiring evening.
