Rebecca Lawton | The Oasis This Time: Living and Dying with Water in the West

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

Rebecca Lawton will read from and sign her new nature book, The Oasis This Time: Living and Dying with Water in the West as part of the Utah Humanities Book Festival. Rebecca will be joined in conversation by Grant Rich, Grassroots Organizer with Utah Rivers Council.

Water, the most critical fluid on the planet, is seen as savior, benefactor, and Holy Grail in these fifteen essays on natural and faux oases. Fluvial geologist and former Colorado River guide Rebecca Lawton follows species both human and wild to their watery roots—in warming deserts, near rising Pacific tides, on endangered, tapped-out rivers, and in growing urban ecosystems.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of The Oasis This Time: Living and Dying with Water in the West from The King's English.
