Sharon Forks Meeting Room

Sally Sierer Bethea was one of the first women in America to become a “riverkeeper”—a vocal defender of a specific waterway who holds polluters accountable. Join us for a conversation of her memoir, Keeping the Chattahoochee: Reviving and Defending a Great Southern River, in which she tells stories that range from joyous and funny to frustrating—even alarming—to illustrate what it takes to save an endangered river. Her tales are triggered by the regular walks she takes through a forest to the Chattahoochee over the course of a year, finding solace and kinship in nature.

FCPL's outdoor book club, Bookish Trailblazers, will be discussing Keeping the Chattahoochee on Tuesday, June 11 at 9:30 a.m. at Fowler Park. Join the book club for a walk around Fowler Park and a discussion on Keeping the Chattahoochee.
