Books on Tap – Ferndale
February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
Join us at Downtime Taps (1740 LaBounty Drive in Ferndale) to discuss the Whatcom READS 2019 title, “The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America” by Timothy Egan. The story of the nation’s biggest wildfire – an apocalyptic blaze that burned an area the size of Connecticut in a weekend. No living person had ever seen a fire with the ferocity, speed, and destructive power of the Big Burn of 1910. Equally dramatic is the larger story of Teddy Roosevelt and Gifford Pinchot, and the creation myth of the U.S. Forest Service. All are welcome! Books on Tap meets on the third Wednesday.
