Chautauqua Presents – Author Craig Childs: Apocalyptic Planet, A Journey to the Ends of the Earth

2014_Craig_Childs_220x200pxCraig Childs writes about the relationship between humans, animals, landscape, and time. His stories come from visceral, personal experience, whether in the company of illicit artifact dealers or in deep wilderness. He has published more than a dozen critically acclaimed books and is a commentator for National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition.” His work has appeared in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Men’s Journal, Outside and Orion. 

Tonight, Childs will take the audience on a journey to some of the world’s most extreme environmental landscapes: the driest deserts of Chile, the genetic wastelands of central Iowa and the vast Greenland Ice Sheet. Through science and adventure, he will reveal the ways in which our world is constantly moving toward its end and how we can change our place within the cycles and episodes that rule it.

Boulder Conversations with Extraordinary People Presents an Evening with Catherine Long Gates

Pacesetter Catherine GatesCatherine Long Gates is the third generation manager of Long’s Gardens, a horticultural business founded in Boulder in 1905.  A Boulder native, she grew up on the family farm located just one mile from the heart of the city.  Operating a farm in the city has provided lots of opportunities for “career development” from field laborer, retail clerk, and general handywoman to iris judge, water negotiator, and urban agriculture watchdog. Complimentary wine and cheese will be served. 

This event will be held at the Chautauqua Community House. More information and to purchase tickets click here. [April 16, 2013 . 5:30pm]
