Davis local Kim Stanley Robinson, New York Times best-selling fiction writer, will share his penetrating thoughts about our world and its climate plight based on his latest book, The Ministry for the Future, Tuesday, February 23, 2021, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm in an online event. Robinson will speak for about 40 minutes with another 30 for Q&A.
Robinson writes science fiction, or more precisely, climate fiction, and the topic of most of his recent books is the urgent threat of climate change and the loss of biodiversity on our earth. He also envisions how to understand and transform our dangerous trajectory. Robinson writes of many solutions as he weaves his story, and in his talk he’ll no doubt offer many suggestions for our community and beyond. Bring your thoughtful questions.
