*This is a benefit event for "Free the Hikers", three Americans who've
been detained in Iran for the past six months. One of the hikers,
Sarah Shourd, is a close friend of Laura's and they traveled Mexico
together to conduct interviews with ecological sanitation experts when
Laura was doing research for the book "Dam Nation: Dispatches of the
Water Underground". All proceeds from this event will support the
legal fees and travel costs for the families of the Hikers. To learn
