A Talk with Erica Gies, Author of “Water Always Wins”

December 10, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

| Free

In this presentation, Author Erica Gies will give a talk on the research that went into her book as well as how new climate disasters remind us every day, our world is not stable. Increasingly severe and frequent floods and droughts inevitably spur calls for higher levees, bigger drains, and longer aqueducts. But as we grapple with extreme weather, a hard truth is emerging: our development, including concrete infrastructure designed to control water, is actually exacerbating our problems. Because sooner or later, water always wins.

About the Author: Erica is the author of Water Always Wins: Thriving in an Age of Drought and Deluge, and an award-winning, independent journalist who covers science and the environment from Victoria, British Columbia, and San Francisco, California. Also a National Geographic Explorer, her work appears in the New York Times, Scientific American, Nature, Ensia, The Economist, bioGraphic, National Geographic, and other outlets.
