Program Description

Event Details

This is an in-person event and will take place at the library.

In Thicker Than Water: The Quest for Solutions to the Plastic Crisis, journalist Erica Cirino brings readers on a globe-hopping journey to meet the scientists and activists telling the real story of the plastic crisis. From the deck of a plastic-hunting sailboat with a disabled engine, to the labs doing cutting-edge research on microplastics and the chemicals we ingest, Cirino paints a full picture of how plastic pollution is threatening wildlife and human health. Thicker Than Water reveals that the plastic crisis is also a tale of environmental justice, as poorer nations take in a larger share of the world’s trash, and manufacturing chemicals threaten predominantly black and low-income communities.

Teens grades 7-12 who attend this event and email something they learned will receive 1 hour of community service credit. 

Registration required. Limited to 25.
