An acclaimed writer and veteran chronicler of the West whose interests range wide across the American landscape and American history, Egan is the author of several books, including The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America, a New York Times bestseller, and The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl, winner of the 2006 National Book Award for nonfiction. Egan’s “Opinionator” column for the New York Times is consistently among the most read pieces on the site, and he was part of the Pulitzer Prize-winning team that wrote the 2001 New York Times series “How Race Is Lived in America.”
The Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters is proud to be a partner for the fourth annual talk honoring the late conservationist—and Wisconsin Academy Fellow—Harold “Bud” Jordahl.
