Register for One Book talk with author Hope Jahren

‘The Story of More’ is an essential primer on climate change and mechanisms that drive it

Northwestern University students, faculty and staff, along with members of the public, are invited to attend the virtual One Book keynote event with best-selling author Hope Jahren in conversation with One Book Faculty chair and Professor William Miller on Oct. 28, from 5 to 6 p.m.

“The Story of More: How We Got to Climate Change and Where We Go from Here,” Northwestern’s One Book selection for the 2021-22 school year, explores the consequences of population growth and human habits of consumption on the planet and the actions that we all can take to fight back.

The event is free and open to all, but registration is required.

“Jahren asks us to ‘use less and share more.’ She reminds us that ‘we are endowed with only four resources: the earth, the ocean, the sky and each other. We need everyone, not just scientists, to contribute to tackling climate change,” said Miller, professor of chemical and biological engineering and director of the Center for Engineering Sustainability and Resilience (CESR); McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science.

The keynote event is part of a series of events hosted by the One Book program over the course of the academic year.
