You are invited to a presentation with Minnesota environmental expert Grant Merritt, author of Iron and Water: My Life Protecting Minnesota’s Environment, a memoir of his life and work. In 1855 the Merritt family came to Minnesota. Years later, Alfred Merritt became one of the “Seven Iron Men” who built the first mines in the Mesabi Range. More than 50 years later, Grant Merritt, another descendant, would lead the efforts to protect Lake Superior from damage caused by mining. Iron and Water is Grant’s memoir sharing his story on behalf of Minnesota’s people and environment and also the story of his notable family in the state’s history.
Grant J. Merritt has served as executive director of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, was a member of the first board of the Minnesota Environmental Quality Council and was Minnesota’s representative on the Great Lakes Water Quality Board. He was an attorney in the areas of environmental law, transportation, and governmental relations for more than fifty years.
Books are in-stock now! If you are unable to attend this event, feel free to call the bookstore to reserve your signed copy of Iron and Water.
