This Land Is Our Land: Book Talk with Ken Ilgunas

This Land Is Our Land: Book Talk with Ken Ilgunas

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College
General Public 

Join us to hear from Ken Ilgunas – author, journalist, and environmental writer – on his new book, which proposes something unheard of: opening up American private property for public recreation. 

Bio: Ken Ilgunas is an author, journalist, and environmental writer. Ken Ilgunas, lifelong traveler, hitchhiker, and roamer, takes readers back to the nineteenth century, when Americans were allowed to journey undisturbed across the country. Today, though, America finds itself as an outlier in the Western world as a number of European countries have created sophisticated legal systems that protect landowners and give citizens generous roaming rights to their countries' green spaces.
