Author to read from Grizzly Manifesto at Gonzaga

WILDLIFE -- Canadian conservation author Jeff Gailus will read from his book “The Grizzly Manifesto” at Gonzaga University this week, sponsored by the university's Environmental Studies Speaker Series.

The program will start at 7 p.m., Wednesday, (Feb. 22) in the Jepson Center’s Wolff Auditorium. Gailus plans to read from his book and discuss the future of grizzly bears in the United States and Canada.

Gailus has developed extensive knowledge of grizzlies, following them from Yellowstone National Park through the Canadian Rockies to the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area (pronounced musk-quah-ke-chee-kah) in northern British Columbia.

The free event, open to the public, is titled, “A Grizzly Tale of Two Countries: Grizzly Bear Management and Recovery across the Medicine Line.”

Sid Marty, a recent recipient of the prestigious Grant MacEwan Literary Arts Award and one of Canada’s most celebrated environmental writers, called “The Grizzly Manifesto” an important book. “If you care about wild bears and wild lands, read this book,” Marty noted. The book was among five finalists for the 2010 Alberta Readers’ Choice Award.
