Collected Works Bookstore & Coffeehouse welcomes prize-winning author William deBuys, via Zoom, Tuesday, August 17, 6 p.m. William is the author of ten books, including The Last Unicorn, one of Christian Science Monitor’s 10 Best Nonfiction Books of 2015; River of Traps, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and a Pulitzer Prize nonfiction finalist; The Walk (an excerpt of which won a Pushcart Prize in 2008); and A Great Aridness. In 2008-2009 he was a Guggenheim Fellow. He lives in New Mexico and will be discussing his latest work: The Trail to Kanjiroba – Rediscovering Earth in an Age of Loss.

In 2016 and 2018 acclaimed author and conservationist William deBuys joined extended medical expeditions into Upper Dolpo, a remote, ethnically Tibetan region of northwestern Nepal, to provide basic medical services to the residents of the region. As deBuys describes these journeys through one of Earth’s remotest regions, his writing celebrates the land’s staggering natural beauty, and treats his readers to deep dives into two scientific discoveries—the theories of natural selection and plate tectonics–that forever changed human understanding of our planet.
