Iowa author speaking in Eldon
ELDON — Larry Stone, freelance writer and photographer, and former outdoor writer with the Des Moines Register, will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Eldon Library Hall.
His appearance is one in a series of talks and lectures concerning Iowa, its land and people, sponsored by the American Gothic House Center and the Wapello County Conservation Board.
Stone, who has spent 40 years exploring Iowa and is the author of numerous books on Iowa life and land, will present “Iowa — Portrait of the Land.”
Based on his award-winning book written for the Department of Natural Resources, “Portrait,” is a reminder to Iowans of the rich history of their natural resources.
Raised in southern Iowa, Stone’s boyhood fascination with the creeks and woodlots on his family’s farm brings authenticity to his nature photography, writing, and lectures. With degrees in biology and journalism, he also understands the natural world and can communicate the wonders of outdoor experiences.
Stone’s program, which is co-sponsored by Humanities Iowa, is free and open to the public.
