Join photographer David Moskowitz and author Eileen Delehanty Pearkes for a book launch of Big River: Resilience and Renewal in the Columbia Basin, Wednesday, June 19, 2024, at Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum in The Dalles. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the program starts at 6 p.m.

The authors will be joined in a panel discussion by Yakama Tribal member Lucille Begay, and Ubaldo Hernández, Comunidades Executive Director. They will highlight the challenges facing the region and the people working on sustainable solutions.

This event is part of a series of international book events celebrating the book launch of Big River, and is cohosted by Save Our wild Salmon, a diverse, nationwide coalition working together to restore wild salmon and steelhead to the rivers, streams and marine waters of the Pacific Northwest. Big River explores the Columbia River watershed as one living, interdependent entity that embraces a broad cultural and ecological perspective.

The culmination of Moskowitz’s many years of photographing the river and exploring its watershed and Pearkes’s decades of research, Big River seeks a path forward for the Columbia River watershed, balancing the demands around water, salmon, agriculture, energy, and climate with the fundamental need for a sustainable living river.
