MEDIA SPONSOR EVENT: WBEZ is a media sponsor for Chicago Public Library’s One Book, One Chicago program. Join Chicago Public Library’s One Book, One Chicago program as they welcome climate expert David Wallace-Wells. David Wallace-Wells is a national fellow at the New America foundation and a columnist and deputy editor at New York magazine. He was previously the deputy editor of The Paris Review. His book, The Uninhabitable Earth, is a No. 1 New York Times bestseller and reveals the dramatically different near-future lives that humans will lead due to the global impacts of the climate crisis.
David will be interviewed by Tony Briscoe. Tony Briscoe is an environmental reporter with The Chicago Tribune who has written extensively about issues facing the Great Lakes and the impacts of climate change in the Midwest. Since joining the Tribune in 2014, Briscoe has delved into a broad range of issues, including the complexity of plastics pollution within the planet’s largest system of freshwater and the dangers posed by wave phenomena known as meteotsunamis.
Doors to the Auditorium open at 5 p.m., and seating is first come, first served. Books are available for purchase, and the author will autograph books at the conclusion of the program.
