Book Launch – Extinction by Bradley Somer
December 3, 2022
With special guest, Ali Bryan
In a lonely valley, deep in the mountains, a ranger watches over the last surviving grizzly bear.
With the natural world exhausted and in tatters, Ben has dedicated himself to protecting this single fragment of the wild.
One night, he hears voices in the valley – poachers, come to hunt his bear.
A heart-pounding chase begins, crossing forests and mountainsides, passing centuries of human ruins. Sometimes hunter, sometimes prey – Ben must choose the bear’s fate and his own.
Is he willing to lay down his life for a dying breed?
Is he willing to kill for it?
AWCS is pleased to support our former Writer in Residence, Bradley Somer, with the launch of his 3rd book, Extinction. This manuscript was the project that he was working on during his 2018 residency.
Come celebrate and be entertained.
This event is free and open to everyone. It takes place in person at RGO Treehouse on the 4th floor of cSpace Marda Loop (map).
