Meeting January 13th, 2017 7:30-10PM

Liz Cunningham will tell the story behind her book Ocean Country, which is a call to action, a meditation on the state of the seas, but most of all the story of finding true hope in the midst of dire environmental crises.

After a near-drowning accident in which she was temporarily paralyzed, Cunningham crisscrossed the globe in an effort to understand the threats to our endangered oceans. Her intimate account charts her thrilling journey through unexpected encounters with conservationists, fishermen, sea nomads, and scientists, in the Mediterranean, Sulawesi, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Papua, New Guinea. Join us to hear Cunningham share stories and photographs about the amazing people she met, who showed her what true hope can be.
