Whatcom READS – Whatcom County’s premier annual literary series – presents its 11th title, The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt & the Fire that Saved America by Timothy Egan. Though set in 1910, the story of the nation’s largest wildfire and the birth of the national conservation movement is a timely, provocative story sure to spur interesting county-wide “book club” discussions. Readers will also engage with free community events, including March 7 and 8, 2019, appearances by the author. See the website for a full calendar of events. Read the book. Join the conversation.
