At Home on an Unruly Planet: Conversation with KNKX's environment reporter Bellamy Pailthorp & West Seattle author Madeline Ostrander

West Seattle journalist and author Madeline Ostrander will join KNKX's environment reporter Bellamy Pailthorp to talk about Ostrander’s new nonfiction book, At Home on an Unruly Planet (Holt)—in an event hosted by C&P Coffee and Paper Boat Booksellers. A series of vivid and hopeful accounts of American communities confronting the climate crisis, the book asks, how do we find a sense of home and rootedness in a time of upheaval? The book—just released this August—tackles this question with “searching intelligence and uncommon empathy,” according to Pulitzer prize-winning author Elizabeth Kolbert. Ostrander will also share experiences from her reporting—from remote Alaska to Florida to here in the Pacific Northwest—and talk about finding resilience in heated times.
