This Thurs: Lecture by Kevin Fedarko, author of The Emerald Mile.

Hi All,
Just heard of an event, passing the info along:

Come hear about the epic 1983 Colorado River flood that threatened Glen Canyon Dam, closed the Grand Canyon and gave 3 adventurous river guides the perfect opportunity to test their skills against massive whitewater! Join CFWE and Metropolitan State University of Denver's One World One Water Center for a free evening with Kevin Fedarko, author of The Emerald Mile. Join us on January 9, 2014 for a 6 pm reception and 7 pm lecture at the Marriott SpringHill Suites on the Auraria Campus of MSU Denver: 1190 Auraria Parkway, Denver, CO 80204.

The lecture is free. But those who would like to attend are being asked by the CFWE folks to rsvp in advance here:CFWE.

For those who are interested, there is also a wine-tasting event before the lecture. And signed copies of The Emerald Mile will be available following the talk.

Same "Emerald Mile" presentation tonight in Albuquerque as posted on the Adobe Whitewater Club site and local kayak meetup group site.

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 – SPECIAL MEETING: The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride Through the Heart of the Grand Canyon by Kevin Fedarko, a former river guide himself.. “The Emerald Mile is the rarest of creations–a magical convergence of words and paper, wood and water, rock and sky, human character and cosmic caprice. Can an adventure story be as beautiful as it is heart-stopping and exciting? This one is. Fedarko’s book is as inspiring as a dory itself, flying down a wild river. I have no doubt it will become a classic, a timeless chronicle of what can still be legitimately called the American spirit.” By Bob Shacochis,
author of Swimming in the Volcano and The Woman Who Lost Her Soul.
