NEA Big Read Book Discussion: Far From Tame with Laurie Allmann

Join Laurie Allmann at The Watershed Cafe on Wednesday, April 17th from 7pm to 9pm for a discussion on how nature “provides an alternate map of this region, charting new boundaries based on natural communities and ecosystems.” NEA Big Read author Emily St. John Mandel sets "Station Eleven" around the Great Lakes, the same region explored in local essayist and naturalist Laurie Allmann's book "Far From Tame: Reflections from the Heart of a Continent".

Grab a glass of wine or another treat from the cafe and join this casual evening of thoughtful discussion. ArtReach has a few copies of "Far from Tame" to loan. Copies of the book are also available for check out at the Osceola Public Library.

An initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. Showcasing a diverse range of contemporary titles that reflect many different voices and perspectives, the NEA Big Read aims to inspire conversation and discovery.
