As part of the Brooklyn book festival, the Natural Resources Defense Council and Guernica magazine will present a panel of writers and journalists to discuss the storyteller’s role in addressing climate change and society’s lackluster response to addressing it.
Novelist Pitchaya Sudbanthad, artist Eve Mosher, New Yorker journalist Carolyn Kormann and policy expert Robert Moore will take part in the conversation, which will be moderated by Guernica’s Amy Brady. They’ll discuss how stories can inspire a sense of urgency and new, imaginative responses to an environmental crisis and spark social change.
The event will be held at Subculture at 45 Bleecker St. The cash bar will open at 6 p.m. and the panel begins at 7 p.m., followed by an audience Q & A. For tickets, visit brooklynbookfestival.org.
