Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future with Elizabeth Kolbert and Henry Fountain

Join Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “The Sixth Extinction” and a staff writer at the New Yorker, and Henry Fountain, climate correspondent at the New York Times, for a discussion of Kolbert’s new book, “Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future,” in this virtual conversation on climate change sponsored by the Jay Heritage Center.

“Beautifully and insistently,” writes Helen Macdonald in the New York Times, “Kolbert shows us that it is time to think radically about the ways we manage the environment.”


Copies of the book are available for purchase at Arcade Books in Rye, NY, and Barrett Bookstore in Darien, CT.
