Author Paul Lindholdt will read from and present on his book In Earshot of Water: Notes from the Columbia Plateau at Neill Public Library, beginning at 5:30 pm in the Hecht Room on Wednesday, June 4th.  Stop by the library to pick up the chapter that will be discussed, “On Attention;” reading the chapter is not a requirement for attendance.

Paul is a Professor of English at Eastern Washington University.  His ecological memoir, In Earshot of Water, was the 2012 winner of the Washington State Book Award.  “To read In Earshot of Water is to enter the mind of a first-rate naturalist, a devoted father, and a keen observer of all the confounding ways people find to live in place. To read this book is to learn again how to listen, how to forgive, and ultimately, how to love life that is sometimes as cruel as it is beautiful.”—Kathleen Dean Moore, author, Wild Comfort

Copies of In Earshot of Water will be available for purchase on site.
