Event Details

Award-winning author, Mark Sundeen, will speak at the Crested Butte Library on Wednesday, April 5 @ 7 pm. He will be reading from his new book, “The Unsettlers: The Search for the Good Life in Today’s America.”

“The recent publication of The Unsettlers is timely; as the Paris Review writes, “especially in the shadow of an indefatigably evil administration,” the time is ripe for conversation about non-conformity and a redefinition of community based on value structures not shared by the powers that be.

A good companion read for The Unsettlers is Wendell Berry’s 1977 classic, The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture, or if you’d rather watch than read, check out the recent alternative lifestyle film Captain Fantastic (much of it filmed here in the Pacific Northwest).”
