A conversation with author Simon Winchester. Published in January 2021, Land examines in depth how we acquire land, how we steward it, how and why we fight over it, and finally, how we can, and on occasion do, come to share it. Ultimately, Winchester confronts the essential question: who actually owns the world’s land—and why does it matter?

To be held at the Bidwell House Museum for a limited in-person audience and also streamed via Zoom. Members: Free. Non-members: $10.

10 a.m. Attendees must register on the Museum’s website.
