The authors will reflect on the capability of narrative to transport us to remote, fragile, and threatened ocean environments undergirding our planetary ecosystem, the challenges in telling stories about science, and the urgent environmental concerns motivating their books, in dialogue with Barton Thompson Jr., Perry L. McCarty Director of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and Margaret Cohen, Andrew B. Hammond Professor of French Language, Literature and Civilization (Comparative Literature).

Following the event, there will be a book-signing with each of the authors.
