SciFri Book Club Fall Pick: Rising, Dispatches from the New American Shore

The Science Friday Book Club is back this fall! Join DPL readers and SciFri Book Clubbers for an exploration of climate change, coastal flooding, and its effects on communities around the country with Elizabeth Rush’s Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore. Published in 2018, the book voyages to communities in Louisiana, Staten Island New York, coastal Florida, the Bay Area of California, and the forests of Cascadia and asks us to witness the slow, the fast, and the inexorable changes wrought by global warming. 

The SciFri Book Club features programming to go along with the read, whether your thing is trivia or participating in live radio! And no need to leave young readers behind - Science Friday partners with educators and scientists to create free STEM activities, lessons, and resources for all learners.

While print copies are limited, the ebook version of Rising will be always available through October!
