On the first Tuesday of every month, The Bookstore Plus hosts a unique book club experience where readers have the opportunity to discuss the book club pick with the author! On Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021 at 7:00 pm we will talk with Brad Edmondson, via Zoom, to discuss A Wild Idea. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the event link.
ABOUT THE BOOK| A Wild Idea shares the complete story of the difficult birth of the Adirondack Park Agency (APA). The Adirondack region of New York's rural North Country forms the nation's largest State Park, with a territory as large as Vermont. Planning experts view the APA as a triumph of sustainability that balances human activity with the preservation of wild ecosystems. The truth isn't as pretty. The story of the APA, told here for the first time, is a complex, troubled tale of political dueling and communities pushed to the brink of violence.
