SaratogaREADS! is delighted to welcome Elizabeth Kolbert back to Saratoga Springs to discuss The Sixth Extinction, and her experience writing and researching this Pulitzer-Prize-winning study of mass extinction events and how humankind is contributing to the rapid rate of change that presages another.  A staff writer at The New Yorker since 1999, and author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man Nature and Climate Change, Ms. Kolbert has been widely recognized for her journalism. In addition to the winning the Pulitzer Prize, The Sixth Extinction was a New York Times Top Ten Book of the Year and an American Library Association Notable Book, and tops The Guardian’s list of the 100 Best Nonfiction Books of All Time.
