We will be partnering with Whitman County libraries to bring you a talk by author John Soennichsen, who has literally written the book on J Harlen Bretz, the “rebel geologist” who answered the riddle of how the dramatic coulees, gullies, and deserts between Idaho and the Cascade Mountains in Eastern Washington came to be.

Our guest lecturer received his Bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Oregon and went on to Eastern Washington University to pursue a Masters in Fine Arts, Creative Writing. He has authored six books, including “Bretz’s Flood” and “Washington’s Channeled Scablands Guide,” which is a comprehensive guide to explore Washington’s Ice Age canyons of wonder, great trails, stunning scenery, and amazing history.

Join us as we cover a brief history of J Harlen Bretz and his scabland research, followed by an audiovisual presentation offering a photographic tour of Washington’s scablands.
