Climate Preparedness Week Book Discussion

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Main Library
449 Broadway
Community Room

Join us for a moderated discussion of Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore by Elizabeth Rush. Hailed as “deeply felt” (New York Times), “a revelation” (Pacific Standard), and “the book on climate change and sea levels that was missing” (Chicago Tribune), Rising is both a highly original work of reportage, and a haunting meditation on the impact of climate change to the places and people we love.
