Virtual Author Talk: Tershia D’Elgin, “The Man Who Thought He Owned Water”
September 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Depicting deep love, obsession, and breathtaking landscape, The Man Who Thought He Owned Water is an impassioned call to rebalance our relationship with water. It will be of great interest to anyone seeking to understand the complex forces affecting water resources, food supply, food security, and biodiversity in America. – Goodreads
Tershia d’Elgin is an author and social activist, with a special interest in water policy, soil, and the tension between agriculture and metropolitan claims on water. A San-Diego based writer and water-resources consultant, she raised funding and managed coastal canyon restoration. For several years she oversaw a working farm on the South Platte River. Her book The Man Who Thought He Owned Water, about water through the lens of that Colorado farm, reveals tightening, well-financed claims on surface and ground water across the West. And the claimants are us!
