The Sixth Extinction (An Unnatural History)
March 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
by Elizabeth Kolbert (Picador; Reprint edition, January 6, 2015)
Named a Pulitzer Prize winner and one of top 10 books of the year in NY Times Book Review, The Sixth Extinction takes us on an incredible journey. Described as at once frank, entertaining and deeply informed, Kolbert explains how humans have altered the planet in a way no species has ever done before. She uses research from many disciplines and considers the history of extinction as a concept. Illuminating, objective, fascinating and frightening, her words compel us to rethink what it is to be human, in our on-going search for a more sustainable future.
