Heather Hansman: Downriver: Into the Future of Water in the West
September 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The Green River, the largest tributary of the Colorado River system, is crucial, overused, and at risk. Author Heather Hansman paddled the river from source to confluence and see what the experience might teach her about those risks. She’ll discuss her new book about the Green, “Downriver,” and talk about why it’s important to tell stories about place, natural resources, and human impact, and how books and literature can show how connected we are.
Heather Hansman, the author of the new book “Downriver” is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in Outside, California Sunday, Smithsonian, and many others. After a decade of raft guiding across the United States, she lives in Seattle.
