John Taliaferro - Grinnell: America's Environmental Pioneer and His Restless Drive to Save the West

Tuesday, July 23: Montana author John Taliaferro joins us for a reading from his new book, Grinnell: America’s Environmental Pioneer and His Restless Drive to Save the West. 7pm.

When George Bird Grinnell died in 1938, papers across the country memorialized his many accomplishments; the New York Times declared Grinnell “the Father of American Conservation.” So why is his name so hard to place? In GRINNELL, a rollicking, comprehensive biography worthy of its subject, John Taliaferro finally recounts the life of a man whose prophetic vision of environmental devastation—and urgent appeals for governmental intervention—feels more relevant by the hour.

John Taliaferro is a graduate of Harvard College, a former senior editor at Newsweek, and the author of five previous books, including All the Great Prizes, winner of the Douglas Dillon Award. He lives in Texas and Montana.
