CORNWALL -- Cornwall Library will present In The Nature of the Future: Elizabeth Kolbert in conversation with Gillian Blake, a free program on Zoom, on March 6 from 5 to 6 p.m.

Registration is required online at the library’s events/programs page:

Writer Kolbert will speak with her longtime editor, Blake, a Cornwall resident, about the process between writers and editors, as well as the contents of her new book “Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future,” a follow-up to her Pulitzer Prize-winning last book, “The Sixth Extinction.” The new book “delves into how the very sorts of human interventions that have imperiled our planet are increasingly seen as the only hope for its salvation,” a library announcement said
