Malibu Library Speaker Series Returns with Author Elizabeth Rush Discussing Climate Change for Earth Month

April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

(Malibu, CA) – The Malibu Library Speaker Series returns during Earth Month with author Elizabeth Rush discussing her books about the impacts of climate change on April 7 as part of Pepperdine University’s Climate Calling Conference. “Malibu should be proud of the incredible contributions the Library Speaker Series has made to the cultural life of our community,” said Mayor Paul Grisanti. “The speaker series continues to showcase incredibly talented speakers discussing the most relevant subjects of our time, and it is very good news that we are finally able to hold this popular event in-person.” During Earth Month, the City and the LA County Library partners with Pepperdine University to present an environmentally themed Library Speaker Series event. This year, Rush, the author of “Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore” and “Still Lifes from a Vanishing City: Essays and Photographs from Yangon, Myanmar,” 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, the 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, 7:00 PM at Pepperdine’s Elkins Auditorium. RSVPs are not required.
