About this Event

Fall for the Book presents The Beck Environmental Lecture

In his travelogue of our near future, The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming, David Wallace-Wells brings into stark relief the climate troubles that await—food shortages, refugee emergencies, and other crises that will reshape the globe. But the world will be remade by global warming in more profound ways as well, transforming our politics, our culture, our relationship to technology, and our sense of history. Learn how it will be all-encompassing, shaping and distorting nearly every aspect of human life as it is lived today. And yet Wallace-Wells offers hope that because we engineered this problem, we must be able to engineer an escape from it. The Beck Environmental Lecture is sponsored by Robert and Lucy Beck.

This is a free public lecture. All Eventbrite ticket holders should arrive at the venue by 5:45 p.m. At this time, any unclaimed reserved seats may be released to waiting members of the general public.

About the author: David Wallace-Wells is the Deputy Editor at New York magazine, where he writes a column on climate change, and where his viral cover story “The Uninhabitable Earth” was published to widespread acclaim. Formerly the Deputy Editor of The Paris Review, and a National Fellow at the New America Foundation, he is the co-host of the 2038 podcast, which interrogates predictions about the next two decades.
