In Conversation with John Richard Saylor

Join M. Judson Booksellers on Tuesday, August 16th at 5:30 pm for an In Conversation event with John Richard Saylor! He’ll be chatting about his book Lakes: their birth, life, and death.


A professor of mechanical engineering at Clemson University, Saylor has spent the better part of his career studying phenomena that occur at the interface between air and water. In Lakes, John Saylor explores a very common body of water that is of great ecological importance, revealing that there is much more beyond the surface. Readers will learn that even the most ordinary of lakes experience a scientific drama not unlike the emotional drama of their human counterparts. In spite of the calm pastoral nature that we see in the small duck pond or the larger lake, these everyday lakes experience an array of profound and wondrous processes, often hidden in plain sight.
