Book Discussion — “The Hidden Life of Ice: Dispatches from a Disappearing World” by Marco Tedesco with Alberto Flores d’Arcais
February 4, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
The Camden Conference and the Auburn Public Library present a book discussion — “The Hidden Life of Ice: Dispatches from a Disappearing World” by Marco Tedesco with Alberto Flores d’Arcais; translated by Denise Muir; foreword by Elizabeth Kolbert. This discussion will take place via Zoom on Thursday, February 4 at 4pm.
“A pioneering researcher’s illuminating account of Arctic ice–its secret history and dire future. Tedesco unearths its secrets–from evidence of long-extinct “polar camels” to fantastically weird microorganisms living at freezing temperature in cryoconite holes–and weaves together the bald facts on climate change with poetic reflections on this endangered landscape, epic tales of Arctic explorers, and the legends of the rare local populations”– Provided by publisher.
