DJ Lee, author of the March release Remote: Finding Home in the Bitterroots, and tina ontiveros, author of the forthcoming rough house, join us for an evening of stunning prose and frank conversation about the particular complexities of parent/child relationships and how they shape who we are.

Remote: Finding Home in the Bitterroots

Skillfully intertwining history, outdoor adventure, and mystery, Lee’s memoir is an engaging contribution to the growing body of literature on women and wilderness and a lyrical tribute to the spiritual connection between people and the natural world. Lee is a Regents Professor of Literature and Creative Writing at Washington State University, the Director of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness History Project, and a scholar-fellow at the Black Earth Institute.
