A Wilderness Puzzle: The Creation of North Cascades National Park (Virtual Program)
Look at a map of the North Cascades and you’ll see a jigsaw puzzle of land designations and labels. How did one of the most remote, wild regions in the contiguous United States come to be carved up into these disparate pieces? And why is North Cascades National Park among the least visited in the country? The answer is a tale of politics, passion, and people. The park jump-started the modern environmental movement in the Pacific Northwest and influenced wilderness preservation nationally, forcing federal public lands agencies to change how they managed our national parks and forests. North Cascades is a reminder that national parks are not only scenic landscapes of national significance, but political entities, created through negotiation and compromise. This program will be presented by Lauren Danner, author of Crown Jewel Wilderness: Creating North Cascades National Park. If you are unable to make this specific date or time, you may still register and we will send you a link to view the class on your own time! All registrants will have access to the class recording for one week after the program.

Talks/Lectures
Ariel Sabar, Veritas: A Harvard Professor, a Con Man and the Gospel of Jesus's Wife
In 2012, Dr. Karen King, a star religion professor at Harvard, announced a breathtaking discovery just steps from the Vatican: she’d found an ancient scrap of papyrus in which Jesus calls Mary Magdalene “my wife.” The mysterious manuscript, which King provocatively titled “The Gospel of Jesus’s Wife,” had the power to topple the Roman Catholic Church. It threatened not just the all-male priesthood, but centuries of sacred teachings on marriage, sex, and women’s leadership, much of it premised on the hallowed tradition of a celibate Jesus. Award-winning journalist Ariel Sabar covered King’s announcement in Rome but left with a question that no one seemed able to answer: Where in the world did this history-making papyrus come from? Sabar’s dogged sleuthing led from the halls of Harvard Divinity School to the former headquarters of the East German Stasi before landing on the trail of a Florida man with an unbelievable past. Could a motorcycle-riding pornographer with a fake Egyptology degree and a prophetess wife have set in motion one of the greatest hoaxes of the century? A propulsive tale laced with twists and trapdoors, Veritas is an exhilarating, globe-straddling detective story about an Ivy League historian and a college dropout—and how they worked together to pass off an audacious forgery as a long-lost piece of the Bible. Nominated for the Edgar Award for best True Crime book of the year Finalist for the Investigative Reporters and Editors Book Award Ariel Sabar is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in The Atlantic, The New York Times, Harper's Magazine, The Washington Post, and many other publications. He is the author of My Father's Paradise: A Son's Search for His Jewish Past in Kurdish Iraq, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award.
