On Tuesday, November 9, fans of David Yetman and Arizona’s natural beauty gathered together at the MSA Annex for an event to celebrate Yetman’s new book, Natural Landmarks of Arizona, published by the University of Arizona Press.
The event, co-sponsored by Why I Love Where I Live, The Southwest Center and the Press, included a book signing, as well as a lifetime of stories from Yetman on the natural landmarks he first saw as a child, and those he explored as a social scientist, author, and host of his Emmy award-winning shows, The Desert Speaks and In the Americas with David Yetman.
Big thanks to The Southwest Center’s Carlos Quintero Herrera, outreach coordinator, for his assistance promoting and filming the events, and Jeffrey Banister, director, for sharing the publishing history of the organization and introducing Yetman. Additional thanks to Alex Tovar, co-owner of Why I Love Where I Live, for hosting the book signing.
