Off-Gridders: Staking a Claim in the San Luis Valley

August 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Off-Gridders: Staking a Claim in the San Luis Valley. A special event with award-winning author Ted Conover

Conover explores firsthand a rural way of life that is about living cheaply, owning land, and keeping clear of the mainstream. Cheap Land Colorado is a passage through an America lived wild and off the grid, where along with independence and stunning views come fierce winds, neighbors with criminal pasts, and minimal government and medical services. In their struggles to survive and get along, the people of the San Luis Valley tell us about an America riven by difference where the edges speak more and more loudly to the mainstream.

Registration Required (Limited to 150 people):

Sponsored by: Colorado Solar Energy, League of Women Voters: Chaffee County, Central Colorado Writers
