Author Talk with John Taliaferro

Wednesday, July 24, 2019 - 6:00pm

Hailed by the New York Times as “the father of American conservation,” George Bird Grinnell (1849–1938), the Brooklyn-born son of a banker, looked beyond a burgeoning cityscape and saw a brighter future for the whole country. In Grinnell, John Taliaferro traces the naturalist’s expansive trajectory from his time at Yale through his dozens of expeditions out west, riding alongside General Custer in the Black Hills before Little Bighorn, to the adventures that continued even after he became editor-in-chief of Forest & Stream.

Author Talk with Keith Aune

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 6:00pm

We are delighted to welcome Keith Aune to read from his new book, Theodore Roosevelt & Bison Restoration on the Great Plains. Rapidly disappearing bison in the late 1800s prompted progressive thinkers to call for the preservation of wild lands and wildlife in North America. Following a legendary hunt for the last wild bison in central Montana, Dr. William Hornady sought to immortalize the West's most iconic species. Activists like Theodore Roosevelt rose to the call, initiating a restoration plan that seemed almost incomprehensible in that era.

Join us for a lively evening with award-winning radio journalist, author, teacher, community activist, and former TV reporter Jo Giese as she shares Never Sit If You Can Dance: Lessons From My Mother. At a turbulent time in America, when personal connections are fleeting and shared values rare, Giese offers uplifting lessons in old-fashioned civility in her memoir. A tender, pithy, and radiant tribute - the lessons are wisdom from a mother of the 20th century for a daughter in the 21st century.
