The Naked Desert - Body Erotic/Body Politic - Bears Ears National Monument
Feb 18, 2017, 7:00 pm
Authors Craig Childs and Amy Irvine will visit Ken Sanders Rare Books to discuss the newly designated Bears Ears monument on Saturday, February 18th at 7:00 PM.
In defense of a naked and elegant land, Amy Irvine and Craig Childs are teaming up to tell brave and provocative stories about Bears Ears. With the recent designation of this new monument, these two authors will remind us of what is being protected, and why. This will be an evening of spoken word and mixed media, and an intimate impression of a wild and storied place.
Craig Childs has published more than a dozen critically acclaimed books, including his most recent book, Apocalyptic Planet, which won the Orion Book Award and the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Men's Journal, and Outside. An occasional commentator for National Public Radio's Morning Edition, Childs lives in Western Colorado.
Utah native Amy Irvine’s book, Trespass: Living At The Edge of The Promised Land, combines memoir, natural history, Western history, anthropology, and an examination of the Mormon religion. Author and wilderness advocate Irvine, who also lives in Colorado, compiled the book Making a Difference, a collection of stories from people within grassroots organizations working to preserve our environment.
This event is made possible with support from Utah Humanities.
