February Book Group ~ The Secret Knowledge of Water

February 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Living on an island we are surrounded by water. While The Secret Knowledge of Water is set in the deserts of the Southwest, the book will change how you think about water everywhere.

The Secret Knowledge of Water is written by Craig Childs.

Childs is known for following ancient migration routes on foot, pursuing early Pueblo passages across the Southwest and most recently the paths of first peoples into the Americas during the Ice Age. He has won the Orion Book Award and has twice won the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award, the Galen Rowell Art of Adventure Award, and the Spirit of the West Award for his body of work. He is contributing editor at Adventure Journal Quarterly, and his writing has appeared in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Men’s Journal, and Outside. The New York Times says “Childs’s feats of asceticism are nothing if not awe inspiring: he’s a modern-day desert father.”
