Read The Big Burn ahead of time: National Book Award winner Timothy Egan tells the story of the 1910 forest fire that stretched from Idaho through Montana, Washington, and British Columbia. It galvanized an emerging conservation movement and persuaded the public that forests needed federal protection.
Program: As climate change increases the risk and severity of forest fires, it is important to understand current policies and their history. On June 13, join the conversation at the Renton History Museum, housed in a historical Art Deco fire station, where Egan will talk about his book and answer questions. No requests for book-signing, please.
Registration begins May 23 online at kcls.org or call the Renton Library at 425-226-6043.
