Know Your Islanders Talk: Neil Mathison, Catastrophic Columbia. Mon., Dec. 4 at 7 pm
December 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Have you ever wondered why Eastern Washington has so many canyons but so few rivers? So much black, volcanic basalt and so (apparently) few volcanoes? Only one stretch of the Columbia River was never dammed? In a reading co-sponsored by Griffin Bay Bookstore and the San Juan Island Trails Committee, Neil Mathison will talk about “Catastrophic Columbia” and his new book, Volcano: an A to Z and Other Essays about Geology, Geography, and Geo-Travel in the American West. Refreshments are courtesy of the Friends of the Library and the San Juan Island Trails Committee.
