Jeff Goodell at the Hudson Library

By century's end, hundreds of millions of people will be retreating from the world's shores as our coasts become inundated and our landscapes transformed. Acclaimed journalist Jeff Goodell's The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World is the definitive account of the coming water, why and how this will happen, and what it will all mean. Goodell employs fact, science and first-person, on-the-ground journalism to show vivid scenes from what already is becoming a water world. This program is sponsored by the Hudson Library’s Flood Family Lecture Series.

Goodell is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone and a frequent contributor to The New York Times Magazine and Yale University’s Environment 360. He serves on the board of the McHarg Center at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. Goodell speaks on sea level rise, geoengineering and climate change, coal, and America’s energy future.

Copies of The Water Will Come will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Register for this free program online at hudsonlibrary.org or call (330) 653-6658 x1010.
