Men’s Book Club: Meet the Author


November 14, 2018
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Men’s Book Club will have the chance on November 14 to sit down with John Ross, the author of The Promise of the Grand Canyon: John Wesley Powell’s Perilous Journey and His Vision for the American West.

We will, of course, discuss this fine biography of the legendary explorer and conservationist but we will also explore with the author questions about his approach to writing this and his other books. How does he locate his resources and how does he resolve any conflicts? What special challenges has he encountered? This will be a very special opportunity to dig into the book but also into the craft of writing.

Please note that we will also pick our next few books, so come with your suggestions.

The meeting will be held at Bob DuPont’s home. Please email the Bob to let him know you’re coming.
