Elizabeth Kolbert, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Sixth Extinction and staff writer at The New Yorker, will be stopping by DePaul on Tuesday February 18 from 2-3pm in Student Center room 220 for a casual Q&A discussion. Students and faculty are welcome! A flyer with more info is attached.
How do you talk about a problem that’s too big to see? How do you demand action when it’s easier to delay? How does art speak in response to science? Come watch a wide-ranging group of artists and professors discuss these questions and more. From DePaul University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Paola Cabal, Liam Heneghan, Rebecca Johns-Trissler, and Kathryn Schaffer will pool their experience and expertise to help you understand how to grapple with something as daunting—and important—as climate change.
This program is a part of the 2019-2020 One Book, One Chicago season, exploring the theme Season For Change through the book The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert. For more information, visit www.onebookonechicago.org
