Malibu Library Speaker Series 

The Malibu Library Speaker Series returns for Earth Month on April 7. The inaugural event will feature author Elizabeth Rush. The event is part of Pepperdine University’s Climate Calling Conference, a program that brings together the city of Malibu, the LA County Library, and Pepperdine University, to present an environmentally themed Library Speaker Series event. 

Rush is the author of Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore and Still Lifes from a Vanishing City: Essays and Photographs from Yangon, Myanmar. She will discuss the impacts of climate change.  

In Rising, Rush guides readers through some of the places where climate change has been most dramatic, from the Gulf Coast to Miami and from New York City to the Bay Area. For many plants, animals, and humans in these places, the options are stark: retreat or perish in place.  

Rush’s writing has appeared or is forthcoming in some of the nation’s leading journalistic publications, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Harper’s and The Atlantic. She received her MFA in nonfiction from Southern New Hampshire University and teaches creative nonfiction at Brown University.  

The free event takes place in-person on Thursday, April 7, 7 p.m., at Pepperdine’s Elkins Auditorium. RSVPs are not required. For parking and other information, contact the Malibu Library at 310-456-6438 or MStallings@library.lacounty.gov. Additional details about this event and the Malibu Library Speaker Series are available on the webpage. All of the Earth Month events will be posted on the city of Malibu website.
