The third speaker in our 2022 Grandfather Presents Thursday evening speaker series is Conor Knighton. Conor is a correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning, America’s #1 Sunday news morning program. His debut nonfiction book, Leave Only Footprints: My Acadia-to-Zion Journey Through Every National Park was recently certified as a New York Times bestseller. A behind-the-scenes account of the year Knighton spent visiting America’s national parks, the book features fascinating tidbits about our parks’ past and reflections on their fragile future. It will be available for purchase at the book signing.
