In this episode you’ll hear a recording of a webinar presentation that Eliza Griswold, author of Amity and Prosperity brought to the network. The presentation is followed by a Q&A with Eliza.
In Amity and Prosperity, the prize-winning poet and journalist Eliza Griswold tells the story of the energy boom’s impact on a small town at the edge of Appalachia and one woman’s transformation from a struggling single parent to an unlikely activist.
“In her new book, Amity and Prosperity, journalist Eliza Griswold provides a deeply human counterpoint to this political fray. She takes on the decidedly fraught issue of energy extraction through a vivid, compassionate portrait of one family living in the long shadow of industry . . . Griswold chronicles these escalating horrors with disarming intimacy.”
— Meara Sharma, The Washington Post
