Craig Childs

On the Trail of the First People: A Journey into the American Ice Age

Thursday, May 1, 2014 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

 Writer and world-traveler Craig Childs will share stories and images from his recent travels into the American Ice Age. Through spectacular images and storytelling, Childs will take us through Paleolithic landscapes from Alaska to Chile to Florida.


Craig Childs is a writer who focuses on the relationship between humans and the landscape, often told from mind-blowing journeys in the wilderness. He is a regular commentator for NPR’s Morning Edition, and the author of more than a dozen critically acclaimed books, including Apocalyptic Planet—which won both the 2013 Orion Book Award and the 2013 Sigurd Olson Nature Writing Award—and The Animal Dialogues: Uncommon Encounters in the Wild (2009). His work has appeared in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Men’s Journal, Outside, and Orion. He is a contributing editor at High Country News, and he teaches writing at the University of Alaska in Anchorage, and at Southern New Hampshire University.
