Join author Laura Trethewey at Halifax’s Central Public Library for the launch of The Imperilled Ocean. Books will be available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.
The Imperilled Ocean by 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. Battles are fought, fortunes made, lives lost, and the ocean approaches an uncertain future. Behind this human drama, the ocean is growing ever more unstable, threatening to upend life on land.
Laura Trethewey is an ocean journalist whose writing has appeared in Smithsonian Magazine, Courier International, the Walrus, Globe and Mail, Canadian Geographic and at Ocean.org, the multimedia storytelling site of the Vancouver Aquarium. The Imperilled Ocean is her first book.
