The End of Eden
Most media coverage of climate breakdown focuses on humans. Very little attention is paid to its effects on the millions of wild species that share the planet with us, even though most of them are far more vulnerable than us. Welz will talk about why he wrote his new book, The End of Eden, and engage in robust discussion with the audience about the book’s vital subject. First 10 attendees will receive a free autographed copy!
