The issue of water — who's got it, who needs it, how safe is it — will be the focus of a program with photographers Alison M. Jones and Daryl Hawk Thursday evening, Oct. 4, 7:30 to 9:30, in the Brubeck Room at Wilton Library.

The program is sponsored by the library and the Norwalk River Watershed Association

Ms. Jones is a conservation photographer who has documented ecosystems and their management for over 20 years in Africa and the Americas. After years of flying over Africa's rivers and lakes, she saw a direct correlation between water sources and human habitation. In 2006 she founded No Water No Life to raise public awareness of freshwater issues.

In her talk at the library, Ms. Jones will share her knowledge of North American and African watersheds and freshwater resources with Mr. Hawk, himself an international documentary and adventure photographer who lives in Wilton. He will interview Ms. Jones on stage, and she will show photos and videos from these watershed areas. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.

Admission to the program is free, but registration is highly recommended. Register online at and click on Events, or call 203-762-3950, Ext. 213.
