The UI Library is co-sponsoring a talk by regional author Gary Ferguson on Thursday, November 13, at 7pm in the Janssen Engineering Building Auditorium (Room 104) at the University of Idaho.
Gary will be discussing the book Decade of the Wolf: Returning the Wild to Yellowstone, which he co-authored with Douglas W. Smith, the wildlife biologist in charge of wolf reintroduction and management at Yellowstone National Park. This event is free and open to the public.
Decade of the Wolf: Returning the Wild to Yellowstone chronicles the re-introduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park in the mid-1990s. The book describes this conservation project ten years after it began, interspersing stories of individual wolves with accounts of how the ecology and communities in the region have been affected by the return of the wolves. It was selected as the 2005 Montana Book of the Year and is this year’s featured book in the Everybody Reads program.
Everybody Reads is a region-wide program that began in 2001 in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. Palouse-area libraries, schools and bookstores joined in 2005. The goal of the project is to bring communities together by providing the opportunity to read and discuss the same book and interact with the author. Everybody Reads 2008 is provided by local libraries with additional support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Washington State Library, the Lewiston Tribune, Confluence Press, FishHawk Guides, the Bookie, Friends of the Moscow Library, and BookPeople of Moscow.
