Georgia Review Earth Day Talk and Reception: Barry Lopez
National Book Award winner Barry Lopez, one of the country’s most important environmental writers and advocates for several decades, will return to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia for The Georgia Review’s eleventh annual Earth Day program. A contributor to the Review over the past twenty-five years, Lopez was the keynote speaker for the journal’s 2011 event and becomes the first repeat speaker.
Review editor Stephen Corey will conduct a live interview with Lopez on “What Horizons Next?” The discussion will focus in part on Horizon, Lopez’s new book, as well as on the writer’s overall career and his sense of the Earth’s future in the current political climate.
Earlier in the day, at 1:30 pm in the Critique Room (#130) of the College of Environment and Design (CED), Lopez will hold an open Q & A session.
The evening event will be followed by a reception, and copies of Horizon and The Georgia Review will be available.
Cosponsored by the Willson Center, the Environmental Ethics Certificate Program, the UGA Press, the UGA Office of Sustainability, the UGA English department, UGA CED, and the State Botanical Garden of Georgia at UGA.
