Bestselling Author John Green Will Discuss New Book "The Anthropocene Reviewed" With Ashley C. Ford

Left Bank Books, Joseph Beth Booksellers, & Seminary Co-op Bookstore | 57th Street Books presents an afternoon with John Green, who will discuss his new book The Anthropocene Reviewed: Essays on a Human-Centered Planet, on May 22 at 1pm CT/ 2pm ET in a private online event. Green will be in conversation with Midwest author and host Ashley C. Ford. This is an exclusive event that requires a ticket purchase that includes a SIGNED copy of The Anthropocene Reviewed and a $1 donation to Partners in Health: Maternal Center of Excellence from Left Bank Books for admission.

The Anthropocene Reviewed is a deeply moving and insightful collection of personal essays from #1 bestselling author John Green.

The Anthropocene is the current geologic age, in which humans have profoundly reshaped the planet and its biodiversity. In this remarkable symphony of essays adapted and expanded from his groundbreaking podcast, bestselling author John Green reviews different facets of the human-centered planet on a five-star scale--from the QWERTY keyboard and sunsets to Canada geese and Penguins of Madagascar.

Funny, complex, and rich with detail, the reviews chart the contradictions of contemporary humanity. As a species, we are both far too powerful and not nearly powerful enough, a paradox that came into sharp focus as we faced a global pandemic that both separated us and bound us together.

John Green's gift for storytelling shines throughout this masterful collection. The Anthropocene Reviewed is a open-hearted exploration of the paths we forge and an unironic celebration of falling in love with the world.
