Soul is Waterproof: Adventure Swimming and Stories of Water

Communications strategist, long-distance swimmer, and author, Matthew Moseley will be at The Garden District Book Shop for a festive evening celebrating his latest book, Soul is Waterproof: Adventure Swimming and Stories of Adventure

The evening kicks off with a short cocktail hour complete with refreshments and light bites catered by The Chicory House, and music from Papa Mali. Moseley will then lead a discussion on his book, read a short passage and open up the floor to questions. Following the Q&A, he will be available to mingle with guests and sign copies of his book. 

Soul is Waterproof takes readers on Moseley’s swimming adventures around the world-from New Orleans, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, the Colorado River, the Sea of Galilee, and points between; he becomes an ambassador for water, passing along essential lessons about adaptability and durability. He shows us why water--either too little or too much--will be the defining issue of our times. His account is a meditation on, a celebration of, and a love story with Earth's life-giving resource. Reading Soul is Waterproof is like being on Moseley's support boat as stories and characters unfold around every bend. Put your life-vest on and buckle up.
