An Evening with Jonathon Thompson

Part elegy, part ode, part investigative science journalism, Jonathon Thompson’s book RIVER OF LOST SOULS tells the gripping story behind the 2015 Gold King Mine disaster that turned the Animas River in southwestern Colorado orange with sludge and toxic metals for over 100 miles downstream, wreaking havoc on cities, farms, and the Navajo Nation along the way.

Free and open to the public. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A book sale and photo opportunity will follow the program. No tickets required.

Date: Tuesday, April 16th
Time: 7:00-8:30PM
Company: Poudre River Public Library District
Location: Hilton Fort Collins, 425 W. Prospect
