‘Cli-fi’ work inspired by Blue Glacier

PORT ANGELES — Bill Liggett, author of “Watermelon Snow,” describes the genre of his novel as “cli-fi,” or climate fiction.

However, Liggett didn’t dream this up from the comfort of a home office.

The book was inspired by Liggett’s firsthand experiences on Blue Glacier, the 2.6-mile-long glacier laden with 580,000,000 cubic feet of ice and snow descending from Mount Olympus.

Liggett will illustrate his experiences living on Blue Glacier in 1963 and read passages from his book at the Olympic National Park Visitor’s Center, 3002 Mount Angeles Road, on Saturday at 3 p.m.

The presentation is free of charge.

Liggett will be available to autograph copies of the book after the talk.

Copies can be purchased at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center bookstore, which supports park programs through sales proceeds.

For more information about exhibits and talks at the visitor center, visit www.discovernw.org.
