Meet bestselling author, journalist, and soil expert Kristin Ohlson here on November 1st!

Bestselling author and soil expert Kristin Ohlson will be at Vintage Books on Saturday, November 1st at 2pm to give a talk about the hidden dynamics of soil and its potential to save our planet. In The Soil Will Save Us, Ohlson makes an elegantly argued, passionate case for "our great green hope"—a way in which we can not only heal the land but also turn atmospheric carbon into beneficial soil carbon—and potentially reverse global warming.

Kristin Ohlson is the granddaughter of farmers and the daughter of avid gardeners. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, Salon, Discover, and elsewhere.

This event is presented by Vintage Books and the Clark County Green Neighbors program.

The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan:

The dust storms that terrorized the High Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since.
Timothy Egan’s critically acclaimed account rescues this iconic chapter of American history from the shadows in a tour de force of historical reportage. Following a dozen families and their communities through the rise and fall of the region, Egan tells of their desperate attempts to carry on through blinding black dust blizzards, crop failure, and the death of loved ones. Brilliantly capturing the terrifying drama of catastrophe, Egan does equal justice to the human characters who become his heroes, the stoic, long-suffering men and women whose lives he opens up with urgency and respect” (New York Times).

In an era that promises ever-greater natural disasters, The Worst Hard Time is arguably the best nonfiction book yet” (Austin Statesman Journal) on the greatest environmental disaster ever to be visited upon our land and a powerful cautionary tale about the dangers of trifling with nature.
