Witness to Change Book Discussion: "The Water Knife"

Witness to Change Book Discussion: "The Water Knife" 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 May 15 event will be a discussion of the book The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi. (Read a description of the book here). Sarah Rosser, Instructor of English at LSU, 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.
