Next Wednesday, April 16th, Annie Leibovitz is scheduled to speak at the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco at the Annual Galen and Barbara Rowell Memorial Lecture. This event will also feature the presentation of the 2007 Rowell Award to author, adventurer and nature photographer James Balog.
For those not familiar with the Rowell Award (from their website):
The Rowell Award celebrates the accomplishments of famed adventurers and photographers Galen and Barbara Rowell, who died in a plane crash in 2002. The Rowell Award honors that adventurer whose artistic passion illuminates the wild places of the world, and whose accomplishments significantly benefit both the environment and the people who inhabit these lands and regions.
The FocalPower Quote Archive has a collection of quotes from Galen Rowell.
This looks to be a very exciting evening of photography!
