BC Libraries Present: Conversations on Climate — Kim Stanley Robinson: Imagining a Better Climate Future
Amidst the urgency and anxiety of the climate crisis, speculative fiction can help us find hope by showing what an alternative, better future could look like. In The Ministry for the Future, Kim Stanley Robinson imagines a world ravaged by climate disaster, where humans find ways to change politics, technology, and the economy to win the fight against climate change.
For our first event of this series, join a hopeful conversation about solutions to our most existential dilemma, and how imagining new futures can help us get there. Moderated by Dorothy Woodend, culture editor for The Tyee. “BC Libraries Present” is a new virtual author series that brings new insights and voices to people in every corner of British Columbia. BC public libraries, both big and small, host these events and provide access to award-winning authors to library users across the province. For the inaugural season for this series, the topic is Conversations on Climate. Climate touches everyone’s lives, homes, jobs, and even their reading choices.
