Author Lauret Savoy rests her head on her hand.“Yet one idea stood firm: Whether a river named Colorado or a canyon called Grand, the American land did not hate.”

Geologist and award-winning author Lauret Savoy captures the deep-time wonder of North American landscapes while weaving in stories of the tangled histories of Native American, African American, and White American life in those landscapes. Drawing from her acclaimed book Trace, Savoy will share her insights into an interdisciplinary vision for America’s past, present, and future, some of which will touch on her current work in progress, focused on her family’s deep roots in the Washington, D.C., area.
