Thursday, October 3rd, 6:30pm, Downtown Public Library.

In this lecture presentation “The Evolution of an Adventurer” author Jonathan Waterman shares his career as a journalist, filmmaker, and explorer through 35 years of dramatic images, video, and story telling.  The author of 12 books addresses how he made a living as an adventurer to fulfill a passion for remote expeditions, while specifically showing – through ecologic observations and careful photography – how changing climate and development compromises wilderness.  Ultimately, his gratitude for wild places inspired his devotion to conservation causes.

This thrilling and structured lecture program encapsulates his new book, Northern Exposures: An Adventuring Career in Stories and Images (University of Alaska Press, 2013). The hour-long presentation will be followed by a Q & A and book signing.

Come to hear this author and check out his new (and old) books from the new library catalog!
