Climate Change Book Discussion

As part of Climate Preparedness Week, join us for a discussion of the book, "Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore" by Elizabeth Rush. Read the book (copies available through CLAMS libraries) and then join library staff for a discussion of the book and climate change. 

Harvey, Maria, Irma, Sandy, Katrina. We live in a time of unprecedented hurricanes and catastrophic weather events, a time when it is increasingly clear that climate change is neither imagined nor distant- and that rising seas are transforming the coastline of the United States in irrevocable ways. 

Elizabeth Rush guides readers through some of the places where this change has been most dramatic, from the Gulf Coast to Miami, and from NYC to the Bay Area. Rising is a shimmering meditation on vulnerability and on vulnerable communities, both human and more than human, and on how to let go of the places we love.
