Turning Down the Temperature: Author Seamus McGraw

Sherbine Lounge, Study Learning Center, Scranton Campus

Author Seamus McGraw will lead a conversation on how to discuss the hot button issue of climate change in the middle of a cultural cold war. Come prepared to listen, but also to talk.

McGraw is the author of a few books, including the critically acclaimed "The End of Country: Dispatches from the Frack Zone," "Betting the Farm on a Drought: Stories from the Front Line of Climate Change," and "A Thirsty Land: The Making of an American Water Crisis." His latest book, tentatively titled "From a Taller Tower, an examination of fifty years of gun violence in America," is to be released later this year from The University of Texas Press.

A father of four, McGraw lives in northeastern Pennsylvania with his wife, his dog, and a neighborly bear with boundary issues named Fardels.
