Everyone is invited to a Book Discussion of the Read Across Rhode Island pick for 2020, Rising: Dispatches From the New American Shore by Elizabeth Rush.
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. In this highly original work of lyrical reportage, Elizabeth Rush guides readers through some of the places where this change has been most dramatic.
Copies of the book are availabe through the Ocean State Library catalog, the RI Ezone, or by asking at theReference Desk( 401-739-5440 ext. 4). Please join us for a lively discussion!
