Steel on Stone: Reading by Nathaniel Brodie

Join us for an evening with Nathaniel Brodie, author of the new book Steel on Stone: Living and Working in the Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon National Park has been called many things, but home isn't often one of them. Yet after years of traveling the globe, Nathaniel Brodie found his home there. Steel on Stone is Brodie's account of a season living in the canyon and draws from the eight years he worked on a National Park Service trail crew navigating a vast and unforgiving land. Embedded alongside Brodie and his crew, readers experience precipitous climbs to build trails, search-and-rescue missions, rockslides, spelunking expeditions, and rafting trips through the canyon on the Colorado River.

Steel on Stone is a love letter to the Grand Canyon and those who have given years of their lives to work its trails so that we may enjoy its transformative landscape today.

Nathaniel Brodie received his MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of Arizona, and was the recipient of the PEN Northwest 2014 Margery Davis Boyden Wilderness Writing Residency. He was an editor of Forest Under Story: Creative Inquiry in an Old-Growth Forest, and his essays have appeared in a number of magazines, literary journals, and anthologies.

This event is free and open to everyone.
