[ARCHIVED] Branigan Library Hosts Author Andrew Knoll

Andrew Knoll

The Readers of the Purple Sage Book Club of the Thomas Branigan Memorial Library invites residents to a talk by Andrew Knoll, author of A Brief History of Earth: four billion years in eight chapters.

The Zoom presentation will be from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. MDT Thursday, July 15, 2021. The event is free.

The story of our home planet and the organisms spread across its surface is far more spectacular than any Hollywood blockbuster -- filled with enough plot twists to rival a bestselling thriller. Drawing on his decades of field research and up-to-the-minute understanding of the latest science, Knoll, a renowned Harvard geologist, delivers an accessible and enthralling biography of Earth. Placing 21st century climate change in deep context, A Brief History of Earth is an indispensable look at where we’ve been and where we’re going.  

Contact for the Zoom invitation or more information. 

This information can be made available in alternate formats by calling 575/528-4005 or 575/528-4008 (TTY).
