Seeing the Desert

Friday, April 5, from 1 to 2 p.m.

This program is made possible by Arizona Humanities.

Most Arizonans are not originally from Arizona. It takes a shift of eye and of attitude to appreciate this hot, dry place, but once it gets into one’s soul, there’s nowhere like it. Gregory McNamee will discuss how we can learn to see the desert as a place of abundant life, abundant beauty, and abundant possibilities for happiness.
