Join Dr. Holly Menninger, director of public engagement and science learning at the Bell Museum in Minnesota, for a book discussion about Hope Jahren's The Story of More: How We Got to Climate Change and Where to Go from Here.

About the book:

In The Story of More, [Jahren] illuminates the link between human habits and our imperiled planet. In concise, highly readable chapters, she takes us through the science behind the key inventions—from electric power to large-scale farming to automobiles—that, even as they help us, release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere like never before. She explains the current and projected consequences of global warming—from superstorms to rising sea levels—and the actions that we all can take to fight back.

About Holly Menninger: 

Before her work at the Bell Museum, Holly was director of public science for the College of Sciences at NC State and led citizen science activities and online science communication for YourWildLife.org. You may remember her from our spirited discussion of Hope Jahren's Lab Girl!

This program is part of Read Smart, a book discussion series co-presented by NC State University Libraries and Wake County Public Libraries.
