A U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq, Roy Scranton writes about sailing through a melting Arctic, preparing for severe storms amplified by climate change and seeking meaning in life at a very precarious time in human history. His first book was Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization, and his new work is We’re Doomed. Now What?
Join us for a conversation about exploring the human condition during unsettling times.
