Author Signing: Richard Fidler, Of Things Ignored and Unloved: A Naturalist Walks Northern Michigan

Tuesday, December 19, 2017 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm
 
We respect wolves, hawks and bobcats, love songbirds and lilies, and are moved by a sunset observed through pine boughs, but we do not care for poison ivy or winged ants. We ignore lichens even though we see them growing on trees everywhere, and we may not even know the names of other things that occupy our world: ventifacts, grape ferns, and club mosses. This book will awaken the reader to events and things tuned out and forgotten in the noisy, rushing environment of our lives. It is a safari to nearby places.

Author Signing: Heather Shumaker, Saving Arcadia

Thursday, December 21, 2017 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Saving Arcadia: A Story of Conservation and Community in the Great Lakes is a suspenseful and intimate land conservation adventure story set in the Great Lakes heartland. The story spans more than forty years, following the fate of a magnificent sand dune on Lake Michigan and the people who care about it. Author and narrator Heather Shumaker shares the remarkable untold stories behind protecting land and creating new nature preserves. Written in a compelling narrative style, the book is intended in part as a case study for landscape-level conservation and documents the challenges of integrating economic livelihoods into conservation and what it really means to "preserve" land over time.
