Lyme author David Van Wie will talk to us about his collaborative writing experience on the book The Confluence: A Collection of Essays, Art and Tall Tales about Fly-fishing & Friendship. An avid fly-fisherman and storyteller, David lives here in Lyme and is a member of the Dartmouth Class of ’79. He’ll give us a sneak peek at his new book, Storied Waters, too.
He will present his photos from the Second College Grant, a 27,000 acre reserve in northern New Hampshire owned by Dartmouth, and will discuss the stories about their 25 years of annual fishing adventures. He’ll read short selections, including excerpts from “An Eddy in Time” and “Wild Rivers, Wild Trout” which tell the history of the Dartmouth Grant and explain the unique strain of wild brook trout that live in the Swift Diamond and Dead Diamond rivers.
