Welcome to the Water 2012 Book Club!
Please join Colorado authors Pete McBride, Jon Waterman, Craig Childs, Will Hobbs, Greg Hobbs, George Sibley and Patty Limerick as you read and discuss their books.
The theme of the Water 2012 Book Club is the adventure, fun and challenge of Colorado’s most precious resource, water.
As the 2012 year of water celebration unfolds starting this coming January when Governor John Hickenlooper kicks off the celebration, these authors will be presenting and discussing their books in person, online, and through live and recorded video, webinar, facebook and blog programs.
More details to follow! We encourage you to share this list with other book club members and we look forward to your participation!
