Author Event: Mark Hirsch
Wednesday, November 12 at 6:30 pm
Join us for an evening with photojournalist and artist Mark Hirsch. Hirsch is the author of That Tree. While recovering from a near fatal car accident in 2012, he was inspired by a friend to use his iPhone to document a year-long photo-a-day project focusing on an old bur oak tree. Hirsch embraced the challenge resulting in a transformative experience of healing, self-discovery, inspiration, and enlightenment. Hirsch will share photos from the project and the talk will be following by a book sale and signing.
Mark Hirsch of Platteville, Wisconsin is an editorial and corporate photographer based out of Dubuque, Iowa. He spent 20 years in the newspaper industry as a photojournalist, photo editor and visuals editor before embarking on a freelance career in 2006.
