Quinn Grover | Wilderness of Hope: Fly Fishing and Public Lands in the American West

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

Quinn Grover  will read from and sign his new book of nature essays, Wilderness of Hope: Fly Fishing and Public Lands in the American West

For Grover fishing is often an “escape” back to wildness, it is also a way to find a home in nature and recalibrate his interactions with other parts of his life as a father, son, husband, and citizen. Grover sees fly fishing on public waterways as a vehicle for interacting with nature that allows humans to inhabit nature rather than destroy or “preserve” it by keeping it entirely separate from human contact. These essays reflect on personal fishing experiences with a strong evocation of place and an attempt to understand humans’ relationship with water and public land in the American West.
