Oregon Author Writes Of Water Woes

In the west, water is a constant battleground; there's great demand and a lot less supply.

Drawing on her childhood grwing up in the arid west, Becca Lawton's essays dive into the the many ways that water--or the lack of it--shape our part of the world.  She collects the essays in The Oasis This Time: Living and Dying with Water in the West.

The author lives in Summer Lake, Oregon and runs the nonprofit PLAYA.

She gives a reading Sunday (August 4th) at the Ashland Public Library.  And she visits the Exchange for a preview.
