One Book, One Chicago Event

The Sixth Extinction book coverAre you interested to learn about what you can do about human-caused climate change? Join us on October 30, 2019 from 6:00pm-7:30pm in the John T. Richardson Library for a DePaul faculty panel discussion of the book The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert. This year’s One Book, One Chicago selection traces the history and present reality of mass extinctions on Earth. Asteroids, volcanoes, sea-level change: all these have caused the deaths of millions of species. Now humanity has become both a new cause and a potential victim.

Professors Ted Anton, Barbara Willard, Jill Hopke, Ali Fatemi, and Mark Potosnak will discuss possible solutions to human-caused climate change as part of DePaul University’s longstanding partnership with the Chicago Public Library’s One Book, One Chicago program.

WHEN: October 30, 2019 from 6:00pm-7:30pm
WHERE: John T. Richardson Library, Room 115
WHO: Open to the public
