Join us as we welcome Pulitzer Prize winner Eliza Griswold for a virtual talk as part of our Appalachian Forum series. Her award-winning book Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) is an incredible piece of reporting on limited legal remedies, community conflict, environmental contamination, toxic exposure, and corruption in two small towns deeply impacted by corporate, hydraulic fracturing. Tune in as she discusses: Beyond ExtractIon: Stories, like Resources can be extracted from communities--how do we break the paradigm?
Join online via Zoom or come to the UK Appalachian Center at 624 Maxwelton Ct. to join the conversation and enjoy refreshments.
This event is cosponsored by the Appalachian Center, the Department of Sociology, and the UK Center for Appalachian Research in Environmental Sciences.
