Event description

Description

Talk — 7−8pm

$12 for general public / $10 for Sonoma Land Trust members

Obi Kaufmann, best-selling author of “The California Field Atlas,” brings his work to the Sonoma County Community on Tuesday, February 11 for an exclusive presentation that includes an introduction to his newest book, “The State of Water: Understanding California's Most Precious Resource.” The acclaimed naturalist, writer and artist grew up adventuring around Mount Diablo — and falling in love with it — before deciding in college to pursue a career in visual arts. A lifelong backpacker, Obi wrote his first book, “The California Field Atlas,” after enjoying decades of California summers, with “more days without a roof on the trail than under one in a house.” He integrates his background as an artist and a trained mathematician into his own brand of storytelling — what he calls “systems stories” — melding analysis and aesthetics through nature writing and watercolor paintings to present a new vision for the conservation of California. His books, prints and cards will be available for sale after the presentation.
