Venue: Stony Stratford Library, 5-7 Church Street, Stony Stratford
Date: 28 Jan 2020
On Tuesday 28th January 2020 the Friends of Stony Stratford Library will be presenting a talk by Beth Gardiner entitled 'Choked: The Age of Air Pollution and the Fight for a Cleaner Future'
'Air pollution is one of the world's most urgent health threats, killing more people than AIDS, diabetes and car accidents combined. Beth Gardiner, author of 'Choked: The Age of Air Pollution and the Fight for a Cleaner Future' will take listeners from the halls of power in Washington and the diesel-fogged streets of London to Poland's coal heartland and India's gasping capital. Her book has been featured as Book of the Week by the Guardian, which said that 'you couldn't ask for a better guide for non-specialists and concerned citizens.'
Beth Gardiner is an American journalist based in London. Her work has appeared in publications including the New York Times, the Guardian, National Geographic and the Washington Post. She has also discussed her work on television and radio, including the BBC, Sky News, LBC and NPR in the United States. Find her online at www.bethgardiner.com
As usual the talk and questions arising will be followed by wine, soft drinks and home made cake. There is no charge for the talk but FoSSL would appreciate donations to help cover the cost of the speaker and the hire of the venue.
Tickets will be available in the New Year from Tuesday 7th January. Please pop into the Library to reserve your places, or telephone them on: 01908 562562. This talk is part of the 2020 Stony Words programme. You can find details of all the events on http://stonywords.org.uk.
