The Raven's 35th Anniversary Event Series: Discussion with researcher Sara Dykman and Monarch Watch


Saturday, September 17, 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! But the Raven is not the only Lawrence institutuion with a September birthday! Monarch Watch is coming up on 30 years at KU, and we’re celebrating with them! Join in on the double b-day festivities on September 17 at 7 p.m., as we host an author talk as part of Monarch Watch's 30th-anniversary events series. Our author for the evening will be researcher Sara Dykman. After biking 10,201 miles from Mexico to Canada and back, Sara Dykman became the first person to cycle the entire route of the migrating monarch butterflies. This fall she returns to the road, this time on a motorcycle, to celebrate monarchs and the publication of her book, Bicycling with Butterflies: My 10,201-Mile Journey Following the Monarch Migration. She will be speaking on behalf of monarch butterflies, whose population has seen dramatic declines in recent years. “I want to give the monarchs a voice,” Dykman says. While the event is free, tickets are required for entry as there are a limited number of seats available. Get your ticket here: Submitted by: Wulfe Wulfemeyer Raven Book Store
