Tershia d'Elgin speaks at the Tattered Cover Book Store

October 25, 2016

Thank you to the Tattered Cover Book Store for a lovely talk and signing with Tershia d'Elgin, author of The Man Who Thought He Owned Water

The Man Who Thought He Owned Water is Tershia d’Elgin’s fresh take on the gravest challenge of our time—how to support urbanization without killing ourselves in the process. The gritty story of her family’s experience with water rights on its Colorado farm provides essential background about American farms, food, and water administration in the West in the context of growing cities and climate change. Enchanting and informative, The Man Who Thought He Owned Water is an appeal for urban-rural cooperation over water and resiliency.

Tershia sold out of books last night at the Tattered Cover! Don't miss her next appearances on Wednesday, October 26 at Platteville Public Library (1pm) and Eaton Public Library (6pm)!
