Jack Loeffler, Headed into the Wind
Date, Time & Location
About the Event
With the temperament of Santa Claus and the tenacity of a badger, renowned Santa Fe aural historian, writer, radio producer and sound collage artist, Jack Loeffler reveals his compassion and concern for Southwestern traditional cultures and their respective habitats in the wake of Manifest Destiny. In this honest memoir, he advises each and every one of us to go skinny-dipping joyfully in the flow of Nature to better understand where we’re headed. Working both as an individual and with comrades—including Edward Abbey and Gary Snyder—he was part of an early coterie of counterculturalists and environmentalists who fought to thwart the plunder of natural resources in the Southwest.
Jack Loeffler is an aural historian, environmentalist, writer, radio producer, and sound-collage artist.
