7:30- Special Guest:
Jason Mark: Editor of Earth Island Journal to give talk on his new book, Satellites in the High Country with a book-signing to follow.

About the Book: In Satellites in the High Country, journalist and adventurer Jason Mark travels beyond the bright lights and certainties of our cities to seek wildness wherever it survives. Although our notions of pristine nature may be shattering, the mystery of the wild still exists — and in fact, it is more crucial than ever.
