Gretel Ehrlich has written about such diverse places as Wyoming, China, and Greenland. Her talk tonight is titled "The Every Where and All There Is." Ehrlich's unique point of view on humans and the environment has earned her a place among the best writers of our time. In addition to her writing, Ehrlich is also known for her work in film editing and producing, beginning with her studies in film at UCLA and culminating in several productions as well as a 1976 PBS grant, which led to a documentary about sheep herding in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. The National Endowment for the Humanities has twice recognized the importance of Ehrlich’s work in both a creative writing fellowship award and a humanities grant. Besides her books and film work, Ehrlich has also published poems, screen plays, and numerous magazine articles.
A reception and book signings by Ehrlich, Lopez, Quammen, Nabhan and other Sowell Collection writers will follow the talk. Everyone is invited.
