Special Event: “Think & Drink” Wednesday, March 16th Lindaman’s Bistro
1235 S. Grand Blvd, Spokane 7:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, March 16th, Humanities Washington will sponsor a “Think & Drink” at Lindaman’s Bistro. The presentation will feature a discussion about Sage Spirit: The American West at a Crossroads, a book by author and photographer Dave Showalter.

Showalter and Paul Lindholdt, a Spokane poet and author, will discuss the following theme:

“Although the spirit of the American West remains an ideal to our national heritage, and many places remain wild and free, for the first time in our country’s short history, development has left many lands and waterways fragmented and scarred by roads, mines, diverted water, and urban development; choked by invasive species; or compromised by overuse—with land, water, and air polluted for short- term gains.”

They will discuss the importance of preserving the economic livelihood and treasured lifestyles of the American West as well as preserving a priceless ecosystem.

Dave is based in Colorado and has published two books focused on the American West. Paul Lindholdt is based in Spokane. He teaches at EWU and has published a number of books including In Earshot of Water: Notes from the Columbia Plateau.
