NYA Kauffmann Program Hosts “The Land We Share” Authors

Yarmouth, Maine, March 18, 2024: Alaskan outdoor writers Christine Cunningham and Steve Meyer will be at North Yarmouth Academy (NYA) on March 29 at 6:00 p.m. in the Middle School Community Room (172 Main St., Yarmouth). This event is part of NYA’s Kauffmann Program and in collaboration with Maine Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. The public is welcome to attend this thought-provoking and photo-illustrated talk about their new book, “The Land We Share: A love affair told in hunting stories.”

Published by Alaska Geographic in partnership with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, National Park Service, and Bureau of Land Management, their book is a remarkable collection of sixty outdoor essays. Themes include about how hunting with bird dogs on public lands nurtures the human spirit, sustains physical health, and deepens appreciation for the natural world. The talk will be followed by Q&A. Copies of the book will be available for sale. Admission is free.

Director of the Kauffmann Program Ian Ramsey organized the writers’ visit, “I’m excited for the ideas and dialogue that come out of this presentation that relate to the Kauffmann Program’s mission around the outdoors, conservation, Alaska, and public lands.”
