Ben Kessler (Rivers of Wind) and Denise Low (The Turtle’s Beating Heart) share lyrical stories of the past and of nature, heritage, and memory. Their writing is both timeless and urgent.

Why should you attend?

“Ben Kessler is that rarest and most precious of writers, one whose every word is formed and informed by a profound love of the natural world, one whose loyalty is undeniably with the world that is our and everyone else’s only home. And he’s a hell of a writer. Please read this book, and then put the book away and go outside, transformed.” —Derrick Jensen, author of The Myth of Human Supremacy

“Denise Low’s memoir weaves together Native American history, meditations on the western landscape, and intimate stories about her family in a most compelling fashion.” —Blake Allmendinger, author of The Melon Capital of the World: A Memoir
