The Death and Life of the Great Lakes
Monday, December 17 • 6:00 pm Armstrong Conference Room
The Great Lakes hold 20 percent of the world’s supply of surface fresh water and provide sustenance, work and recreation for tens of millions of Americans. But they are under threat as never before, and these problems are spreading across the continent. Prize-winning reporter Dan Egan’s “compulsively readable” portrait of an ecological catastrophe happening right before our eyes, blends the epic story of the lakes with an examination of the perils they face and the ways we can restore and preserve them for generations to come.
