From Superior To Ontario, Your Love Of The Great Lakes
The Science Friday Book Club rejoiced in memories, thought about water access, and identified invasive species. So, we mapped it.
This story is a part of our winter Book Club conversation about Dan Egan’s book ‘The Death and Life of the Great Lakes.’ Want to participate? Sign up for our newsletter or record a voice message on the Science Friday VoxPop app.
The Science Friday Book Club just spent five weeks reading and discussing Dan Egan’s The Death and Life of the Great Lakes, a deep dive on the ways human activity and invasive species have forever altered the largest bodies of surface freshwater on the planet. Throughout our time reading, we talked about invasive species, drinking water access, and your memories of the Great Lakes and other bodies of water you’ve loved.
From Twitter, to SciFri VoxPop, to Facebook and more, you shared your thoughts. Wander through the map of memories!
The on-air discussion may be wrapping up, but it’s not too late to dive into the SciFri Book Club festivities. Join local researchers and author Dan Egan on February 20 in New York City for There’s Something In The Water, a live event!
