Writers Night: What's "Environmental," Anyway?
High Country News has long covered the American West. But while many people think of the magazine as having a strict focus on environmental coverage, it actually does much more. High Country News Editor-in-Chief Brian Calvert will discuss his views on environmental writing and why High Country News is (and isn't) an "environmental" magazine, and how writing for a sense of place can dissolve that difference. Seating is limited and registristration is required.
