Blake Memorial Library - Laura Waterman Book Talk, for “Calling Wild Places Home”

April 05, 2024 @ 4:30pm - 5:30pm

Join Laura Waterman as she reads from her new memoir, Calling Wild Places Home

Nancy Kittridge (Illustrator for the book) will also be joining Laura. We will have copies of the book for sale.
“A legendary mountain figure and revered voice on backcountry ethics, Laura Waterman is an American treasure. Her new memoir illuminates the challenges and rewards of homesteading and wilderness stewardship. It also dives deeper into her marriage to the prolific writer and climber Guy Waterman, whose shadow looms over the Northeast because of his tragic decision to intentionally freeze to death atop Mt. Lafayette in New Hampshire. In sharp contrast, Laura chose life–and this book is an embrace of all its mystery, pain, and joy.” — Stephen Kurczy, author of The Quiet Zone: Unraveling the Mystery of a Town Suspended in Silence
