Rebecca Lawton: The Oasis This Time

On Friday, August 23 at 7 p.m., we welcome author Rebecca Lawton to talk about her new essay collection, The Oasis This Time: Living and Dying with Water in the West.


Fluvial geologist and former Colorado River guide Rebecca Lawton follows species both human and wild to their watery roots—in warming deserts, near rising Pacific tides, on endangered, tapped-out rivers, and in growing urban ecosystems. The Oasis This Time, the inaugural Waterston Desert Writing Prize winner, is a call for us to evolve toward a sustainable and even spiritual connection to water.
