Location:
The Collaboration Center

Kristy Howell, sustainability education and engagement coordinator, presents on a book that is part memoir, part history and part conservationist manifesto.


Each summer for eight years, Connors climbed a fire tower in New Mexico and he came down with a modern Walden. As the presenter, Howell will tell what this work means to her and explain why you should read (reread) it. No reservations or homework required.

This presentation, in the new JCCC CoLab, kicks of the fall 2016 Great Books Mini-Lecture Series, which is designed to introduce you to watershed texts that have changed their readers’ views of the world. It’s a series of short talks on great books.

The Great Books series is sponsored by the JCCC English/Journalism Common Read program.
