Book Launch: The Imperilled Ocean by Laura Trethewey

February 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

On February 11th at 6 PM, join author Laura Trethewey to celebrate the launch of her new book, The Imperilled Ocean: Human Stories from a Changing Sea.

On a life raft in the Mediterranean, a teenager from Ghana wonders whether he will reach Europe alive, and if he does, whether he will be allowed to stay. In the North Atlantic, a young chef disappears from a cruise ship, leaving a mystery for his friends and family to solve. A water-squatting community battles eviction from a harbor in a Pacific Northwest town, raising the question of who owns the water.

Imperiled Ocean, by ocean journalist Laura Trethewey is a deeply reported work of narrative journalism that follows people as they head out to sea. What they discover holds inspiring and dire implications for the life of the ocean ― and for all of us back on land.
