Four authors will discuss their new books which deal with a variety of environmental themes and historical issues in free brown-bag lunch gatherings. All events are at noon.
Mark Fiege, a historian at Colorado State University, opens the series on Thursday, Oct. 3, when he will discuss "The Republic of Nature" at the Zephyr Room at the Rio Grande Depot, 300 S. Rio Grande St. (455 West).
