Come see me at the NYPL: “Confronting Climate Anxiety in Fiction”

This is awesome – I’m returning to the New York Public Library, whose literary events are legend.

Confronting Climate Anxiety in Fiction with Akil Kumarasamy, Sam J. Miller, Nathaniel Rich, and Jeff VanderMeer

Writers whose novels and stories have crossed the intersection of climate change and mental health ask whether fiction can have a meaningful impact on how we handle the climate crisis.

I’m more than a little intimidated by this lineup, and the topic – something I think a ton about but haven’t necessarily arrived at any pithy helpful soundbite-friendly insights lol

Last time I was there was in 2019, discussing the anthology “A People’s Future of the United States” with luminaries Victor LaValle, Maria Dahvana Headley, N.K. Jemisin, and Alice Sola Kim  – you can see the full video of that event here.
