I could not be more pleased to announce that I just signed a book deal with Milkweed Editions for the publication of my latest essay collection, Rising: Essays from America’s Disappearing Shore. It will hit bookshelves in early 2018! Until then you can follow me on Twitter to get all the latest updates @elizabetharush.
This past spring I taught a course called “Climate Change and the Stories We Tell” wherein my students interviewed longtime Maine residents about the ways in which climate change had already transformed their lives and livelihoods. I gave a presentation about the course last week at the University of Maine and the Kennebec Journal was there. Check out their coverage here.
And if you want to see the fabulous immersive archive of climate change stories my students designed and populated go to: www.bates/climatechange.
