“Logic And Magic” Watch Party Planned
November’s Montana Library Network Virtual Programming Series’ watch party “Logic and Magic” with Dr. Jon Turk will start at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2, at the Roosevelt County Library. The free event will conclude at 8:30 p.m.
Dr. Turk earned a Ph.D. in chemistry in 1971 and was nominated by National Geographic as one of the Top Ten Adventurers of the Year in 2012. Between these bookends, Turk co-authored the first environmental science textbook in North America, followed by 35 additional texts.
At the same time, he kayaked around Cape Horn, across the North Pacific and around Ellesmere Island. He has mountain biked across the Gobi in Mongolia and made first ski descents and first rock climbing ascents around the globe. In Siberia, his worldview was altered by Moolynaut, a Siberian shaman, and his later books reflect these spiritual journeys. A Siberian elder once told Turk, “If you lose the magic in your life, you lose your power.”
According to Turk, we have hijacked the meaning of power in the modern world. So, let’s step out of line again, shed tears and talk about what we have lost and what we don’t want to lose.
Anyone who would rather watch from home on Zoom, can register online at tineyurl.com/jonturkMT.
Everyone is encouraged to join in this interesting session and enjoy a snack as well.
