The Raven’s 35th Anniversary Event Series: A discussion with anthropologist Lucas Bessire and the Jayhawk Audubon Society


Monday, September 26, 2022 - 19:00


Raven Book Store: 809 Massachusetts Street, Lawrence, KS 66044

Description: September 2022 marks 35 years since the Raven first took flight as Lawrence’s corner bookshop specializing in mysteries—we want to commemorate this major milestone with the community we’ve been a part of for so long now! So we’ve planned a whole month packed to the gills with fantastic and free literary events, like this one! Spend an evening with author and anthropologist Lucas Bessire and the Jayhawk Audubon Society at the Raven on September 26 at 7 p.m.! Bessire will be in conversation with members of JAS about his book “Running Out: In Search of Water on the High Plains. Running Out,” a National Book Award finalist and Kansas Notable Book award winner, tells a disturbing and revealing tale about the depletion of the Ogallala aquifer, while offering ways forward into a more sustainable future. This is an extraordinary opportunity to learn from the experts about the plains of Western Kansas, including the “stark realities of industrial agriculture, eroding democratic norms, and surreal interpretations of a looming disaster.” Learn more here: Submitted by: Wulfe Wulfemeyer Raven Book Store
