Join the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance for an evening with Jack Loeffler and Bill DeBuys–two of the most important voices for conservation in the Southwest today. After this unique presentation, both Loeffler and DeBuys will be available for a book signing. Books from both authors will be available for purchase at the event thanks to participation from Collected Works Bookstore.
Loeffler’s latest book, Thinking Like a Watershed: Voices from the West contains essays and interviews from a diverse group of southwesterners including members of Tewa, Tohono O’odham, Hopi, Navajo, Hispano, and Anglo cultures. Compiled by Loeffler and his daughter Celestia Loeffler, these varied cultural perspectives are shaped by consciousness and resilience through having successfully endured the aridity and harshness of southwestern environments over time. DeBuys’ latest book, A Great Aridness paints a compelling picture of what the Southwest might look like when the heat turns up and the water runs out. This semi-arid land, vulnerable to water shortages, rising temperatures, wildfires, and a host of other environmental challenges, is poised to bear the heaviest consequences of global environmental change in the United States.
Hors d’oeuvres, wine and beverages will be served.
Tickets $20 per person available online and at the door.
