Books in the Trees 2014

Event Description - Books in the Trees 2014
Tap into CC’s “Block mentality” like never before with provocative discussion and the chance for an overnight stay at beautiful TreeHouse Point, located in the mountains, just 30 minutes from Seattle.

The Colorado College Seattle Alumni Chapter proudly presents Books in the Trees, a one-of-a-kind opportunity for CC alumni and friends. CC Professor Miroslav “Miro” Kummel will challenge your minds through three distinct discussions about Elizabeth Kolbert's new best-selling book, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History

Hosts Pete ’85 and Judy Nelson ’85, and their businesses TreeHouse Point and Nelson Treehouse & Supply, are the subject of Animal Planet’s hit show, “TreeHouse Masters.” 

Don’t miss this opportunity to visit one of the most unique locations in the Pacific Northwest and interact with CC faculty, alumni, and friends!
