Former TV writer and journalist Rob Gard moved to a small Scottish island in 2009 to experience a completely different way of life: laboring in a whisky distillery. Gard made the move to get in touch with his blue-collar roots, understand himself, and finally feel like an adult. In his memoir and travelogue, "Distilling Rob," he uses the whisky maturation process as an analogy for how boys become men. The whisky writer celebrates his book's release at the café Muse on 8th where he reads from the book and participates in a brief Q&A, followed by a celebration next door at Little Bar, which is offering happy-hour drink prices for reading attendees.
