Humanities in the Wild: the River Always Wins with David Marquis

Sep 30, 2022, 6:00 pm

Humanities in the Wild is an exploratory outdoor experience that empowers participants to step into the landscapes that inspired some of the American West’s greatest literature. Join us at the Stokes Nature Center for a walk and conversation with David Marquis, author of The River Always Wins.

David Marquis is a writer and activist who lives in Dallas, Texas. Throughout his career he has worked to create lasting, positive social change in the environment, education, and human rights. Raised in West Texas during the drought of the 1950’s, he has an abiding interest in water and conservation issues.

The River Always Wins offers up a metaphor for hope in troubled times. Using the musicality of refrains and short chapters, this prose poem creates a rhythmic understanding of the power of water to both challenge and heal.
