In conjunction with the Hudson River Museum exhibition “Maya Lin: A River is a Drawing”, there will be a Sunday Scholar Series event featuring a panel discussion titled “The Hudson as Life Force” followed by a reception and book signing sponsored by Cornell University Press.

Paul Gallay, President of Riverkeeper, will moderate a panel of four distinguished thinkers as they examine the Hudson River as material and metaphor, looking at how we experience America’s First River, our personal relationship to it, how we have changed it, and how it has, in turn, changed us. Sharing their unique perspectives and understanding of the reality and the idea of the Hudson River and its meaning in the narrative of climate change are panelists:

Karenna Gore, Director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary

John Waldman, Professor of Biology at Queens College and author of Running Silver: Restoring Atlantic Rivers and their Great Fish Migrations (copies available for signing)

David Schuyler, author of Embattled River: The Hudson and Modern American Environmentalism (copies available for signing) and professor of the Humanities and American Studies at Franklin & Marshall College

Immediately following the panel will be a reception sponsored by Cornell University Press for guests to meet and mingle with the panelists while enjoying light refreshments. There will also be copies for sale of David Schuyler’s new book “Embattled River: The Hudson and Modern American Environmentalism” published by Three Hills, a trade imprint of Cornell University Press, which he will be signing during the event.

Event is free with Museum admission but RSVP required.
