Taylor Brorby will read from his book Fracture: Essays, Poems, and Stories on Fracking in America. Bearing witness to hydraulic fracturing in the United States, the book brings together the voices of more than 50 writers exploring the complexities of fracking through first-hand experience, investigative journalism, story-telling, and verse. At a time when politics and profits inhibit meaningful discussions about the hazards of fracking, these creative perspectives can spark a conversation about how we can live with more compassion toward Earth.
Brorby is an award-winning essayist, poet, and environmentalist. A fellow at the Black Earth Institute, Taylor received an MA in Liberal Studies from Hamline University and is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing and Environment at Iowa State University.
