Come celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Prairie Rivers Network, Champaign-Urbana's dynamic healthy rivers advocacy organization! There's a full slate of activities all afternoon. I'll be reading selections from AFTER THE DAM as part of the presentation "River of Hope: Save a Place. Change Your Life," starting at 3 p.m. in the Allerton Music Barn. Jane Addams Book Shop will be selling books.
Novelist Peter Geye, poet Juliet Patterson, and I will talk about place and process in this evening event at Magers and Quinn Booksellers. Come out and join the conversation!
