We are extremely delighted to welcome The Sixth Extinction author, Elizabeth Kolbert, back to Saratoga Springs to discuss her book, and her experience writing and researching this Pulitzer-Prize-winning study of mass extinction events and how humankind is contributing to the rapid rate of change that foreshadows yet another. Come join us for what will prove to be a great session!

A staff writer at The New Yorker since 1999, and author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man Nature and Climate Change, Ms. Kolbert has been widely recognized for her journalism. In addition to winning the Pulitzer Prize, The Sixth Extinction was a New York Times Top Ten Book of the Year and an American Library Association Nobable Book, and tops The Guardian’s list of the 100 Best Nonfiction Books of All Time. She is the Class of 1946 Environmental Fellow-in-Residence at Williams College.
