Author Andrew Reeves – “Overrun: Dispatches from the Asian Carp Crisis”
March 22, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Author Andrew Reeves will discuss and sign Overrun: Dispatches from the Asian Carp Crisis. From aquaculture farms in Arkansas to the bayous of Louisiana; from marshlands in Indiana to labs in Minnesota; and from the Illinois River to the streets of Chicago where the last line of defense has been laid to keep Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes, Overrun (ECW Press, March 12) takes us on a firsthand journey into the heart of a crisis.
With writing that it both urgent and wildly entertaining, Andrew Reeves traces the carp’s explosive spread through North America, discovering along the way that saving the Great Lakes is only half of the challenge. Andrew questions whether we can ever hope to tackle this invasive species without accepting our role in climate change — the effects of which have created the perfect environment for the carp to thrive — and rethinking how we build our cities.
Andrew Reeves is an award-winning environmental journalist whose work has appeared in The Walrus, This
