The One Book - One College SPECIAL EVENT
Reedley College Literary Arts welcomes Timothy Egan, author of the One Book One College selection for 2021-2022, The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt & the Fire that Saved America.
When: Thursday, March 10th, 2022, 7:00 PM Where: RC Cafeteria
The story of the nation's biggest wildfire- an apocalyptic blaze that burned an area the size of Connecticut in a weekend. No living person had ever seen a fire with the ferocity, speed, and destructive power of the Big Burn of 1910. Equally dramatic is the larger story of Teddy Roosevelt and Gifford Pinchot, and the creation myth of the U.S. Forest Service.
A New York Times Bestseller. Winner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award and the Washington State Book Award. A Washington Post, Philadelphia Inquirer, and Amamzon.com book of the year.
Reedley College Literary Arts welcomes David Borofka, author of A Longing for Impossible Things. Borofka taught at Reedley College for more than thirty-five years before his retirement in 2019. A Longing for Impossible Things is his third published book and is a powerful short story collection that charts the yearning inherent in imperfect lives.
Friday April 22nd 4:30 PM RC Forum Hall
