An Evening with Author David Quammen
Missoula Public Library, in partnership with Shakespeare & Co. Bookstore, is pleased to host a reading by celebrated author David Quammen. One of the world’s top science writers, Quammen will read from his new collection of essays The Heartbeat of the Wild: Dispatches from Landscapes of Wonder, Peril, & Hope. Throughout the 21 tales, collected from two decades of his assignments with National Geographic, that make up this book, Quammen takes readers to places where civilization meets raw nature and explores the challenge of balancing the needs of both. Each piece has been revised to reflect current observations and linked with an awareness of the bigger conservation story that together they tell. For this afterhours event please use the Main Street entrance, all other doors will be closed.
