Join the College of Liberal Arts in the University Forum Lecture "Sci-Fi in the Desert: The Life and Works of George R. Stewart" a talk by Donald M. Scott, Oklahoma State University, retired, and UNLV's Public Lands Institute.
The first ecological novelist, George R. Stewart is beloved by sci-fi buffs for his vivid portraits of environmental catastrophe, but remains overlooked by the general public. Nevada’s desert serves as the backdrop of much of his work including Sheep Rock (1951). Stewart is considered a Nevada author. Using selected readings and dramatic visuals, Stewart scholar and biographer Donald Scott will discuss the author’s life and work with specific emphasis on his Nevada legacy.
This event is free and open to the public.
