with Alex Prud’homme
Date: Saturday, October 22, 2011
Time: 3:00 – 3:45

As Alex Prud’homme and his great-aunt Julia Child were completing their collaboration on her memoir, My Life in France, they began to talk about the French obsession with bottled water, which had finally spread to America. A masterwork of investigation and dramatic narrative, The Ripple Effect: The Fate of Fresh Water in the Twenty-First Century is Prud’homme’s inquiry into the fate of freshwater in the twenty-first century.
