Witness to Change Book Discussion: "Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore" In-Person

The LSU Libraries - Special Collections is pleased to be hosting Witness to Change: Community Conversations on Coastal Impacts, a book discussion program funded by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities. This adult reading and discussion program offers participants the opportunity to learn more about issues arising from the complex and changing human relationship to water. See how these issues are both local and global, and join your neighbors in an exploration of how others are adapting to our changing world. 

Our March 27 event will be a discussion of the book Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore, by Elizabeth Rush. (Read a description of the book here). Dr. Kevin Ringelman, associate professor in LSU's School of Renewable Natural Resources, will lead the discussion. The event will be held in person in LSU's Hill Memorial Library (95 Field House Dr. Baton Rouge, LA, 70803). Parking is available in the Indian Mounds or Peabody parking lots adjacent to the library.
