Will Great Lakes Water Be Here Forever?
October 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
A conversation about The Great Lakes Water Wars with author Peter Annin and Michael Hawthorne
Author Peter Annin joins moderator Michael Hawthorne, environmental reporter with the Chicago Tribune, and the Alliance for the Great Lakes on the tenth anniversary of the Great Lakes Compact. We’ll discuss the water diversion controversy and celebrate the release of the second edition of Annin’s book, The Great Lakes Water Wars.
The first edition took us through the 2008 signing of the Great Lakes Compact, a binational agreement to keep Great Lakes water in its place. The second edition offers new reporting on what has happened since, including the Waukesha diversion, Foxconn, and the new frontier of disputes over Great Lakes waters.
6 pm program, reception to follow.
