“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”

Description: In “The Land: Our Gift and Wild Hope,” Rae Marie Taylor recounts the many ways the West has lost the “sacred.” The book mourns the loss of what she refers to with a

traditional Hisp

anic reference—the spirit of querencia—our basic allure to home (the earth) that “runs deep…in our species”

and maintains the human spirit. Vitally concerned about the impact of development on land and water, she bears witness in her book of essays, “The Land,” to both their devastation and today's resurgent hope for renewal.

Ms. Taylor will be joined by authors Jack Loeffler and Kyce Bello for a panel discussion titled, “Collective Imagination Matters: Three Authors Share on Restoring Hope with the Land Itself”.
Start Time: 18:00
