  • Information on the Event: Big River: Resilience and Renewal in the Columbia Basin: Experience a presentation of the new book "Big River: Resilience and Renewal in the Columbia Basin," where photographer David Moskowitz and author Eileen Delehanty Pearkes will showcase a multimedia journey along the Columbia River from source to sea, illuminating its natural wonders and human stories, while also highlighting the challenges facing the region and the people working on sustainable solutions. The Columbia River watershed encompasses immense ecological, cultural, and economic value, the benefits of which its inhabitants have wrangled over for centuries. As we come to terms with the unsustainable nature of our relationship with this watershed, and local Indigenous nations renew their efforts to steward their territories, we have reached an inflection point. This event is part of a series of international book events celebrating the book launch of Big River, and is cohosted by Save Our wild Salmon, a diverse, nationwide coalition working together to restore wild salmon and steelhead to the rivers, streams and marine waters of the Pacific Northwest. Big River explores the Columbia River watershed as one living, interdependent entity that embraces a broad cultural and ecological perspective. The culmination of Moskowitz’s many years of photographing the river and exploring its watershed and Eileen’s decades of research, Big River seeks a path forward for the Columbia River watershed, balancing the demands around water, salmon, agriculture, energy, and climate with the fundamental need for a sustainable living river. This event is put on in partnership with Save Our wild Salmon. More at bigrivercolumbia.com.
