Literature of the Land Book Club - Fall

 

Join us for the fall 2015 session of Literature of the Land, a book club hosted by the Helen Fowler Library. We’ll read 3 books over 3 months, focusing on a specific topic of interest. This fall we’ll examine water and the American West, including the management of it and the various ways it can shape our lives. In October, we’ll begin with Dam Nation: How Water Shaped the West and Will Determine Its Future, examining how water policy and the mitigation of natural resources have shaped the West. In November, we’ll discuss the classic, but surprisingly relevant eco-novel The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abbey. In December, we’ll conclude with The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride in History through the Heart of the Grand Canyon by Kevin Fedarko, which recounts the voyage of three river guides and their dory down the flood-swollen Colorado River, including the history of the river, its exploration, and a discussion of the dams.

 

Each session has individual registration, please select all three date options with seperate registration if you would like to attend the entire series.

 

Each meeting is $5 for the public.

 

 

 

Registration is mandatory as attendance will be limited in number to allow for interactive discussion in a friendly group setting.
