Presentation and discussion led by Vivian Feist Garfein and Dr. Michael W. Klemens, in-person in the Oak Room of the Library or on Zoom.

Novelist Annie Proulx, who has often focused on environmental issues in her fiction, considers wetlands in her new non-fiction book, Fen, Bog, and Swamp. Vivian Feist Garfein and Dr. Michael W. Klemens will speak about the book and lead a discussion on wetlands, considering Proulx’s book, Fen, Bog and Swamp, as a point of departure.

Vivian Feist Garfein served in various capacities during her 26 year tenure with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, most recently as Director of the Central District from 1995 until her retirement in 2012. She currently serves as an alternate member of the Salisbury Inland Wetland and Waterways Commission.

Dr. Michael W. Klemens is a distinguished conservation biologist, a member of the scientific staff at the American Museum of Natural History, and Chairman of Salisbury’s Planning and Zoning Commission. He has served as a gubernatorial appointee to the CT Council on Environmental Quality and the CT Siting Council.
