Description

In 1976, Linda Strader became one of the first women to work on a fire crew for the U.S. Forest Service in the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson. She will share a brief history of women in the Forest Service, and her experiences and efforts to advance in a career where women were not welcome, ending with the challenges women on fire crews continue to face today.

Summers of Fire: A Memoir of Adventure, Love and Courage follows the personal and physical challenges she had to overcome during that career and beyond. In 2018, Ms. Strader became a finalist in the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards. She is currently working on a prequel, and turning her book into a screenplay. Following the talk, she will take questions and autograph books.

In addition to writing, Ms. Strader is a landscape architect, certified arborist, and watercolor artist, and resides in Green Valley, Arizona. After the talk, Linda will take questions and autograph books.
