Announcing a NEW Speaker Series Event – March 3!
We are excited to expand our Summer Speaker Series, in partnership with The Community Library, into a year-round program! Don’t miss the upcoming lecture by freelance writer and editor Heather Hansman on March 3, 2022. As part of the library’s Winter Read series, focusing on river and associated water programs, Hansman discusses the question, “How Does Water Matter in the West?”
Date: Thursday, March 3, 2022
Time: 6:00pm – 7:00pm (Mountain Time)
Location: The Community Library, John A. and Carole O. Moran Lecture Hall
As the environmental columnist for Outside online and a contributing writer for The Guardian, Sierra, and The New York Times, Hansman covers a range of topics from butchers to birth control. But most of what she covers happens outside, as she explores the intersection of science, adventure, and culture.
Her first book, Downriver: Into the Future of Water in the West (2019), details her trip down the length of the Green River and the water system in the Western U.S. Her second book, Powder Days: Ski Bums, Ski Towns, and the Future of Chasing Snow (2021), explores the fantasy of living the ski bum dream, and why it’s not always as dreamy as it seems. Heather lives in Seattle.
