Book launch: Elizabeth Rush presents 
The Quickening: Creation and Community at the Ends of the Earth
In conversation with Emily Raboteau

Greenlight is honored to host Elizabeth Rush for the book launch of The Quickening, the follow-up to her book Rising, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Accompanying a team of scientists and support staff, Rush delivers a personal account of the first research voyage to the so-called Doomsday Glacier, "Antarctica's most important and least understood glacier." Amid the alarming science, Rush ruminates on the "ethics of bringing more people into the world," discussing her own desire to conceive despite anxieties about the planet's future. Joining Rush on stage is author Emily Raboteau to celebrate the launch of The Quickening for what is sure to be a revelatory evening you won't want to miss.
