The University of Rhode Island's Metcalf Institute and the Rhode Island Center for the Book's Reading Across Rhode Island program are pleased to present a conversation with author Elizabeth Rush.
The webinar will begin with a screening of the powerful short film, Home or High Water. After the screening, Metcalf Institute Advisory Board member and PBS News Editor, Ricardo Sandoval-Palos, will lead a conversation with Pulitzer Prize finalist Elizabeth Rush. Rush will share her insights from coastal communities large and small, from the storm-ravaged eastern shore of Staten Island to the disappearing bayous of Louisiana. How are communities at risk adapting? What can they teach us about the challenges to come?
The webinar will conclude with a question and answer session.
