September 19th - Bud Werner Memorial Library - 6:30 PM
An evening with award-winning journalist and photographer Michael Kodas, talking about his new book, Megafire: The Race to Extinguish a Deadly Epidemic of Flame.
Journalist Michael Kodas reveals a brilliant exploration of the rising phenomenon of megafires—forest fires of alarming scale, intensity, and devastation—and explains the science of what is causing them and captures the danger and heroism of those who fight them. In Megafire, Kodas travels to the most dangerous and remote wildernesses, as well as to the backyards of people faced with these environmental disasters, to look at the heart of this phenomenon and witness firsthand the heroic efforts of the firefighters and scientists racing against time to stop it—or at least to tame these deadly flames.
