Nature’s Narratives: The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride in History Through the Heart of the Grand Canyon

October 13 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free
books

Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers as they discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment. “Nature’s Narratives” is a book discussion group sponsored by the Scott Arboretum where readers come together to discuss a book once a month and share in their reading experience.

Written by Kevin Fedarko, The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride in History Through the Heart of the Grand Canyon is an exhilarating true tale about the fastest boat ride ever, down the entire length of the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon that took place during the famous flood of 1983.

Each discussion is free and will be offered through Zoom. Advance registration is required in order to receive the Zoom link (and note that Zoom needs to be downloaded on your device to participate).

Participants are encouraged but not required to read each month’s selection prior to the discussion. Nature’s Narratives will be led by Elizabeth Haegele and participants will be free to make comments and be part of the discussion – or just listen in.
