Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America
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.
