River of Redemption Book Launch

  • Politics and Prose at Union Market 1270 5th Street NE Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

Incorporating seven years of photography and research, Krista Schlyer portrays life along the Anacostia River, a Washington, D.C. waterway rich in history and biodiversity that has nonetheless lingered for years in obscurity and neglect in our nation’s capital. River of Redemption offers an experience of the river that reveals its eons of natural history, centuries of destruction, and decades of restoration efforts. The story of the Anacostia echoes the story of rivers across America.

Come to the Politics and Prose at Union Market on November 16th to meet the author and get your hands on a signed copy of the book.
