AMIGOS BRAVOS “WATER MATTERS” LECTURE SERIES IN SANTA FE FEATURES AUTHOR AND RECENT WINNER OF THE FLANNERY O’ CONNOR AWARD, E.J. LEVY
On the evening of Tuesday, November 13, at 5:30pm, Amigos Bravos will offer the fifth in a year long lecture series on “Water Matters.” The lectures are free to the public and feature some of the most knowledgeable and dynamic speakers in the state, including writers, scientists, poets, environmental activists, and scholars.
Hailed as one of the best new nonfiction writers in the country, E.J. Levy will read from her recently released memoir, Amazons: A Love Story, a memoir that offers an intimate look at urgent global issues that affect us all, including the too-often abstract question of rainforest loss.Amazons: A Love Story offers a fresh approach, interweaving a personal feminist narrative with an urgent ecological one. Levy’s essays have appeared in The New York Times, Orion, and Best American Essays, and have received a Pushcart Prize.
Ms. Levy, a past employee of Amigos Bravos and a long time supporter of the organization, has generously offered to give a signed copy of Amazons: A Love Story to each purchaser of an Amigos Bravos $35 individual membership, following her reading.
The reading begins at 5:30pm, at the Randall Davey Audubon Center on Upper Canyon Road, in Santa Fe. (Take Alameda east to Upper Canyon Road, turn left onto Upper Canyon Road and follow it to the Audubon Center at the end). For more information, call 575-758-3874 or 505-983-4609.
Save the date: On Tuesday, December 18th, the Amigos Bravos “Water Matters” Lecture will feature Nicola Ulibarri. Ms. Ulibarri, is a native New Mexican, a member of the Amigos Bravos Board of Directors, and a Phd candidate at Stanford. She will speak about the “global water crisis” – water shortages, lack of clean drinking water, disputes over shared waterways, and declining aquatic habitat – apparent everywhere.
