Welcoming celebrated writers, artists, and thinkers to engage our community in thoughtful dialogue in the Center’s stunning Steddy Theater. Join us for a discussion, reading and book signing with Dr. John Hausdoerffer, author of the newly released What Kind of Ancestor Do You Want to Be? and Kinship: Belonging in a World of Relations
How are we part of the family of the land and all of its life? How can we learn to become great ancestors–to each other–from the land? Please join local author and teacher Dr. John Hausdoerffer for an interactive discussion of these questions based on his recent books on these questions. Dr. Hausdoerffer serves as the Dean of Western’s Clark School of Environment & Sustainability, and is author and editor for nine books on environmental ethics and justice, including Catlin’s Lament: Indians, Manifest Destiny, and the Ethics of Nature and Wildness: Relations of People and Place. In this interactive talk, Dr. Hausdoerffer will share culturally diverse essays from his two 2021 publications: What Kind of Ancestor Do You Want to Be? and Kinship: Belonging in a World of Relations. Conversation, book signing, and shared beverages with the author will follow his presentation.
