misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Over a Wyoming Campfire- the Beginnings of the National Park Service Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

In 1872, the United State created Yellowstone National Park, the world's first national park, to "conserve the scenery... unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." This was the world's first national park. Today there are more than 450 national parks in the US and 1200 worldwide. This talk will focus on the creation of the National Park Service one hundred years ago in 1916, a radical move for its time, to intervene in the health of the nation's lands. The talk will discuss the history of conservation and how the American wilderness plays an important role in the identity of the American people, as well as outlining the personalities and events that created this, one of the most successful and popular government agencies ever conceived.

Presented by Hamish Lutris, Associate Professor of History at Housatonic Community College.

Registration is required and begins on July 24th.

This month's selection is Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger.

 

“The summer of 1961 finds thirteen-year-old Frank Drum living in small-town New Bremen, Minn. The small-town milieu is rendered in picturesque detail, accurate down to period-appropriate TV programs, for what becomes a resonant tale of fury, guilt, and redemption.” (Publishers Weekly)

This month's selection is The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman.

This month's selection is Rules of Civility by Amor Towles.

 

“A tribute to a bygone era conjures up mesmerizing images of 1930s New York. Two worlds collide on New Year's Eve 1937, and three lives will never be the same. For Katey Kontent and Eve Ross, two working gals out on the town, a chance encounter with patrician banker Tinker Grey sets into motion a series of events causing far-reaching consequences.”(Booklist)
