Novelist and essayist Nathaniel Rich will discuss how contemporary literature is changing to reflect our changing natural world. He will speak about some of the stories he’s written for the New York Times Magazine, where he is a writer-at-large: the story of the handful of scientists and policy wonks who, forty years ago, tried to warn the world about climate change before it was too late; the corporate defense lawyer who discovered that DuPont had secretly poisoned the blood of all living creatures, a story adapted into the recent film Dark Waters; and the fishermen who have fought desperately to stop the state of Louisiana from trying to save them from climate change.
Rich is the author of Losing Earth: A Recent History, winner of several national awards; Second Nature: Scenes From a World Remade, to be published March 31; and three novels, most recently King Zeno, set in New Orleans in 1918.
