BookPeople presents Nathaniel Rich
BookPeople will welcome Nathaniel Rich in an event is co-sponsored by Texas Monthly. Rich will be in conversation with Eric Benson, a Senior Editor at Texas Monthly, about his new book, Losing Earth: A Recent History.
Losing Earth tells the human story of climate change in a rich, intimate way, and is expanded from the issue of The New York Times Magazine devoted to Rich's reporting on the subject. It reveals, in previously unreported detail, the birth of climate denialism and the genesis of the fossil fuel industry’s coordinated effort to thwart climate policy through disinformation, propaganda, and political influence. The book carries the story into the present day, wrestling with the long shadow of our failures and asking crucial questions about how we make sense of our past, our future, and ourselves.
Event will take place on 15th floor of 816 Congress Avenue.
