Elizabeth Rush: Live in Lake Oswego! On Rising Together: Creative and Collective Responses to the Climate Crisis 3/4
Elizabeth Rush, author of Rising, Dispatches from the New American Shore, will visit Lake Oswego to talk about her book. What might we learn from the people living on climate change’s front lines about the future that we share? In this talk, Elizabeth Rush will speak about a small community on the eastern shore of Staten Island–– a place that Sandy both undid and remade from the ground up–– investigating the storm's aftermath and the radical decisions residents made about how to overcome their shared vulnerability. She will address whose voices have been traditionally left out of environmental discourse and how we might make this conversation more whole moving forward. Admission is free, but a ticket is required. (Ticket giveaway is scheduled for Jan. 25 at the Library; for details, see the item above.) Note: People without tickets will be seated at 6:45 p.m. Lakeridge High School Auditorium, 1235 Overlook Drive; 7 p.m.
