Sally Bethea MCP’ 80 Book Talk: Keeping the Chattahoochee

October 24, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

This book talk event will be facilitated by Dr. Brian Stone, Professor of City & Regional Planning and feature Sally Sierer Bethea, MCP ’80, author of “Keeping the Chattahoochee” with discussion, Q&A, and reception to follow. Light hors d’oeuvres, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages will be served. Due to capacity limitations, this event will be limited to the first 50 individuals that RSVP.

Sally Sierer Bethea, MCP ’80 was one of the first women in America to become a “riverkeeper”—a vocal defender of a specific waterway who holds polluters accountable. In “Keeping the Chattahoochee,” she tells stories that range from joyous and funny to frustrating—even alarming—to illustrate what it takes to save an endangered river. Her tales are triggered by the regular walks she takes through a forest to the Chattahoochee over the course of a year, finding solace and kinship in nature.


Deadline is October 18th.
