Author Lecture & Book Signing

Based upon her book, "In Praise of Quiet Waters: Finding Solitude and Adventure in the Wild Adirondacks" Lorraine Duvall will present an historical narrative on how the waters of the Adirondacks were saved from industrial pollution, impoundments that would have resulted in the flooding of towns and thousands of acres, and housing developments built on the shorelines of the lakes and rivers.

She'll describe how she found her own sense of place while paddling her solo canoe on dozens of Adirondack lakes, ponds and rivers for more than 25 years and how she was enriched by studying this history of the recovery of our lands and waters.

This event is FREE, but space is limited.
