Author Nathaniel Rich will be in conversation with WWNO Coastal Desk reporter Tegan Wendland about his new book, "Losing Earth: A Recent History".
By 1979, we knew nearly everything we understand today about climate change—including how to stop it. Over the next decade, a handful of scientists, politicians, and strategists, led by two unlikely heroes, risked their careers in a desperate, escalating campaign to convince the world to act before it was too late. Losing Earth is their story, and ours.
Nathaniel Rich is a writer-at-large at The New York Times Magazine, and a regular contributor to the Atlantic, The New York Review of Books, and Harper’s. He is the author of three novels: "King Zeno," "Odds Against Tomorrow," and "The Mayor’s Tongue." He lives in New Orleans.
April 4, 6pm at the Tulane River and Coastal Center, 1370 Port of New Orleans Pl.
The event is hosted by the ByWater Institute at the Tulane River and Coastal Center, and co-sponsored by the Garden District Book Shop and WWNO.
