Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America

Levinthal Hall, Stanford Humanities Center Map

Sponsored by:
Humanities Center, McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society

Prize-winning journalist and poet Eliza Griswold will discuss her new book, “Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America.” It is an exposé on how the practice of hydraulic fracturing shattered a rural Pennsylvania town, and how one lifelong resident brought the story into the national spotlight.

“Sensitive and judicious … What Griswold depicts is a community, like the earth, cracked open.” — New York Times

A Guggenheim fellow, Griswold is the author of a collection of poems, "Wideawake Field" (FSG, 2007), and a nonfiction book, "The Tenth Parallel: Dispatches from the Fault Line Between Christianity and Islam" (FSG, 2010), a New York Times bestseller that was awarded the J. Anthony Lukas Prize.

Griswold's new book will be available for purchase and signing at the event. No ticket is required, and seating will be on a first-come basis. But we would appreciate your RSVP to help with planning purposes.
