Personal narratives can provide the diversity of voices and values needed to effectively confront the complex challenges of a changing world. In a provocative new essay, award-winning environmental journalist Andrew C. Revkin brings forth one of these vital stories: his own. Chronicling the shifts in his thinking (and writing) over thirty years of covering climate change for outlets like the New York Times, he concludes, surprisingly, “global warming doesn't worry me."

Please join us for a wide-ranging conversation with Andrew about the challenges of writing about climate change and making an impact on readers through personal narrative. He will be joined by Lee Gutkind, founding editor of Creative Nonfiction and Daniel Sarewitz, co-editor of Issues in Science and Technology.

Andrew's essay appears in the current issues of both magazines.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

This event is co-sponsored by Creative Nonfiction and Issues in Science and Technology, the quarterly policy magazine of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
