Kenai Community Library Book Presentation and Signing: The Land We Share
December 14, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us for selected readings, photo presentation, and stories at the Kenai Community Library! In partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, and Bureau of Land Management, noted conservation and hunting writers Christine Cunningham and Steve Meyer share stories about wild lands, animals, and the relationships that can form around hunting.
The Land We Share publication features personal narratives from two lovers of nature who provide a unique perspective on the way we interact with public lands. Hunting is an often-overlooked component of public lands, sometimes perceived with disdain by others in the outdoor community. This publication helps dispel some of the notion that hunters are only out to take from the land. The essays explore how hunting on public lands contributes to the sustenance of physical health, nurtures the human spirit, and deepens appreciation for the natural world
Authors Steve Meyer and Christine Cunningham will be present to discuss and sign the book.
