Book Talk with author Jon Fuller: Verde River Elegy

Thursday, September 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us in hearing Arizona author Jon Fuller’s account of his epic solo canoe journey from the Verde River headwaters near Prescott, Arizona to its end at the Salt River.  Jon paddled alone through tranquil pools and splashy rapids along this beautiful oasis, with only his trusty canoe “”Red”” for company, a laminated river map to show the way, and a notebook in which to record his journey.  From that notebook, Verde River Elegy was born. Copies of the book will be for sale.Jon Fuller is a semi-retired hydrologist and geomorphologist who has spent more than 35 years working on rivers in Arizona and the Southwest.  He is also an accomplished boatman, having completed trips on dozens of rivers across the USA.
