Hi Gail,

In the summer of 1975, composer John Luther Adams, then a twenty-two-year-old graduate of California Institute of the Arts, boarded a flight to Alaska. So began a journey into the mountains, forests and tundra of the far north — and across distinctive mental and aural terrain — that would last for the next forty years.

In this Geography of Hope episode on Tuesday, June 8 at 7 p.m. (ET)/ 4 p,m. (PT), you will hear about John’s special connection with Alaska, what it’s like to live alone in the frozen woods, composing music by day and spending one’s evenings with a raucous crew of poets, philosophers and fishermen. Inspired by his latest book, “Silences so Deep,” we’re sure you’ll enjoy this special treat.


Tuesday, June 8 at 7 p.m. (ET)/ 4 p,m. (PT)

I hope to see you Tuesday, June 8!
Monica Scherer
Director of Outreach
