Booktown On Sunday in September – Anna Krien

Anna Krien – The Long Goodbye

Coal, Coral and Australia’s Climate Deadlock

2pm Sunday 17 September – The Warehouse – Clunes – Free
The Great Barrier Reef is dying. Extreme weather is becoming all too familiar. Yet when it comes to action on climate change, division and paralysis rule the land.

In this vivid, urgent essay, Anna Krien explores the psychology and politics of a warming world. She visits the frontlines of Australia’s climate wars – the Reef, the Galilee and Bowen basins, South Australia. She investigates the Adani mine, with its toxic politics and controversial economics. Talking to power workers and scientists, lobbyists and activists, she considers where climate change is taking us, and where effective action is to be found.

Join us this month to hear more when author Anna Krien will be in conversation with Creative Clunes Chair Tim Nolan.
