Heather Hansen | Wildfire: On the Front Lines With Station 8

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop. 

Join journalist Heather Hansen for a reading and signing of her new nonfiction book, Wildfire: On the Front Lines With Station 8.

Award-winning journalist Heather Hansen spent a full year “embedded” with the City of Boulder Wildland Fire Division, Station 8, and witnessed firsthand the heroics of its wildland fire crew, one of the busiest in the country. In Wildfire: On the Front Lines With Station 8, she tells a rich and compelling story of modern wildfire science interwoven with the history, landscape, and human behavior that influence our response to these phenomena. As the severity, frequency, and costs of fires increase across the West, Hansen examines the changes in both mindset and activity around wildfires, and tracks our evolving perception of wildfire as something useful, to something feared, to something inevitable and necessary—but still profoundly dreaded.
