Slide Presentation Series

In conjunction with our program of providing free books to public libraries we originally planned a book and slide-lecture tour to half a dozen libraries around the state. These programs were so enthusiastically received that we soon extended them, and since 2009 we have collaborated with the Libraries of Eastern Oregon to present slideshow talks by Wild Beauty co-author John Laursen at libraries in cities large and small throughout the region. Laursen continues to speak about Wild Beauty at libraries and museums on a regular basis.

Please contact us if you are interested in organizing a slide presentation at your public library or cultural center:
