Peter Brannen will speak about and sign his new book, The Ends of the World: Volcanic Apocalypses, Lethal Oceans, and Our Quest to Understand Earth's Past Mass Extinctions, on Thursday, January 17th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
Our world has ended five times: it has been broiled, frozen, poison-gassed, smothered, and pelted by asteroids. In The Ends of the World, Peter Brannen dives into deep time, exploring Earth’s past dead ends, and offers us a glimpse of our possible future. Many scientists believe that the climate shifts of the 21st century have analogs in these five extinctions. The Ends of the World takes us on a tour of the ways that our planet has clawed itself back from the grave, and casts our future in a new light.
