Acclaimed journalist Jeff Goodell will discuss his book, The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World on Monday, November 11 at 7 p.m. at the Hudson Library. By century's end, hundreds of millions of people will be retreating from the world's shores as our coasts become inundated and our landscapes transformed. The Water Will Come is the definitive account of the coming water, why and how this will happen, and what it will all mean. As he travels across twelve countries and reports from the front lines, Goodell employs fact, science and first-person, on-the-ground journalism to show vivid scenes from what already is becoming a water world.
Goodell is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone and a frequent contributor to The New York Times Magazine and Yale University’s Environment 360. He serves on the board of the McHarg Center at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. Goodell speaks on sea level rise, geoengineering and climate change, coal, and America’s energy future.
Copies of The Water Will Come will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Register for this free program online at hudsonlibrary.org or call (330) 653-6658 x1010.
