“Mr. Lopez’s tone is intimate, inviting, as if his words shared the air with the snap and hiss of a campfire.” The New York Times Book Review
“Arguably the nation’s premier nature writer.” – San Francisco Chronicle
The Merwin Conservancy invited the community to The Green Room, Maui’s literary and environmental salon series at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, for an unforgettable evening that featured famed nature writer, environmentalist and humanitarian, Barry Lopez.
To read Barry Lopez is to commune with a deep thinker. His writings have frequently been compared to those of Henry David Thoreau, as he brings a depth of erudition to the text by immersing himself in his surroundings, deftly integrating his environmental and humanitarian concerns. He is best known as the author of Arctic Dreams, for which he received the National Book Award. Barry Lopez captivated The Green Room audience as he examined the relationship between human culture and physical landscape.
Many thanks to FIM Group for their sponsorship of The Green Room.
