People will have the opportunity to talk with local author Tom R. Hulst at University Place Pierce County Library, 7315 27th St. W. on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2 p.m.
Hulst will sign copies of his book “The Footpaths of Justice William O. Douglas: A Legacy of Place.”
U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas possessed unusual stamina, an unyielding will and enormous courage. He organized hikes and other actions to protect Olympic Beach and Glacier Peak in Washington state, the C&O Canal near Washington, D.C., the Buffalo River in Arkansas and areas along the Appalachian Trail.
Hulst’s book inspires the reader to accept Douglas’ invitation to hike with him, to visit a place with him…and to “join him in a process of discovery and affirmation that is available to a free people in a spacious land.”
Hulst spearheaded environmental education programs in southwestern Washington and contributed to journals and education publications. He has hiked and climbed in the Pacific Northwest for nearly 40 years.
Friends of the University Place Library sponsor this free program.
