Come join us for a reading and book-signing with Elizabeth Grossman, author of "Watershed: the Undamming of America." Her book examines the implications of dam removal to America's rivers and their communities by exploring the stories of a number of locales around the country where dam removal is now under consideration or underway. Dams and diversions along the rivers of America have transformed the country, and in doing so created environmental problems whose resolution will determine how we live in the next century. Questioning the value of dams requires a serious readjustment in our notions of progress, a process frightening and threatening to some, daunting to all. "Watershed: the Undamming of America" is a story of people and place, as watersheds become an increasingly important part of local identity throughout the country. Time: 7 pm. Cost: Free.
