February Events

.Feb 15 Beneath the River of Shooting Stars: Beauty, Austerity, & Grace in the Grand Canyon- Author Event with Kevin Fedarko 6pm at Star Hall, 159 E. Center St. Kevin Fedarko's work has taken him to some of the world's most dramatic landscapes. His deepest connection, however, is to the river and the canyon where he spend six years researching & writing The Emerald Mile, which opens a window into the hidden world at the bottom of perhaps the most iconic and beloved landscape feature in North America, as well as one of the most endangered. Despite the fact that the Grand Canyon is widely recognized as universally revered, it is surrounded on all sides by threats. In order to explore this paradox, Fedarko & his friend Peter McBride set out to walk through the heart of the canyon, from Lees Ferry to Grand Wash Cliffs - an arduous & illuminating odyssey of nearly 800 miles.
