The Writers Room, 740 Broadway at Astor Place, New York

Event Description:

The New York Review of Books is pleased to present a public conversation about the climate crisis and how we come to terms with it. The discussion is prompted by an NYR Daily essay, ‘Climate Signs,’ by American Book Award winner and City College teacher Emily Raboteau, who toured the ten sites of the citywide public art exhibition Climate Signals with a new friend, fellow City College teacher and writer Mikael Awake.

Climate Signals was a five-borough installation by artist Justin Brice Guariglia. It consisted of highway signs flashing text to draw passers-by into engaging with climate change. Climate Signals was presented by the Climate Museum in partnership with the Mayor’s Office — Climate Policy and Programs in Fall 2018.

Join us for a special panel discussion with Emily, Mik, Justin, and our director Miranda Massie, moderated by NYRB Associate Editor Lucy McKeon.
