Western Book Club: Tracing Time, Season of Rock Art on the Colorado Plateau
March 8 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Eiteljorg Museum’s Western Book Club, like the museum itself, is committed to including works that represent many different cultural values, attitudes, and points of view.
Members come together bimonthly to discuss books that represent the diversity of the American West and Indigenous peoples of North America. Meetings take place via Zoom, and are open to all.
Join us for a discussion of Tracing Time, Season of Rock Art on the Colorado Plateau by Craig Childs. Craig Childs bears witness to rock art of the Colorado Plateau—bighorn sheep pecked behind boulders, tiny spirals in stone, human figures with upraised arms shifting with the desert light, each one a portal to the open mouth of time. With a spirit of generosity, humility, and love of the arid, intricate landscapes of the desert Southwest, Childs sets these ancient communications in context, inviting readers to look and listen deeply.
