Free and open to the public.

What are the implications of climate change for life on earth? How can we make sense of those changes if we are not trained scientists? Can we do something to slow — and ideally stop — the extinction of life forms as members of the public? Come join three writers who have taken up the challenge of answering these questions in their recent books. Moderated by Iris Montero, the panel will feature Cornelia Dean (Against the Tide: The Battle for America's Beaches, 2005; Making Sense of Science, 2017); Mary Ellen Hannibal (Citizen Scientist: Searching for Heroes and Hope in an Age of Extinction, 2017), and Elizabeth Rush (Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore, forthcoming, June 2018).
