In a reading co-sponsored by Griffin Bay Bookstore, author Lauren Danner will talk about her new book Crown Jewel Wilderness: Creating North Cascades National Park at 7 pm Wednesday, March 21 at San Juan Island Library. North Cascades National Park is remote, rugged, and spectacularly majestic. This engaging account chronicles how concern about natural resource agency policies eventually led to activism that resulted in the park's 1968 creation.
