It is the largest oil disaster in American history, and it could happen again. It is more than a story of ruined beaches, dead wildlife, corporate spin, political machinations, and financial fallout. It’s a riveting human drama filled with people whose lives will forever be defined as “before” and “after the gulf oil disaster.” Black Tide is the only book to tell this story through the perspective of people on all sides of the catastrophe, from those who lost their lives, loved ones, and livelihoods to those who made the policies that set the devastating event in motion, those who cut the corners that put corporate profits over people and the environment, and those who have committed their lives to ensuring that such an event is never repeated.
Join us when Antonia Juhasz discusses and signs her dramatic and compelling book, Black Tide that exposes the human failings and human cost of the largest oil disaster in American history and how it could easily happen again. Antonia will be joined by Greenpeace Oceans campaigner John Hocevar and Peter Galvin, Co-Founder and Conservation Director of the Center for Biological Diversity.
