When Rivers Run Dry, by Fred Pearce

Hosted by Mines Professor of Hydrology Kamini Singha

Golden Town and Gown Book Club (TGBC) will discuss When Rivers Run Dry, by Fred Pearce in a Zoom meeting on April 8, 2021. Mr. Pearce is an entertaining, British writer, with an international perspective.

The topic of water supply is thought by some to rival climate change in importance to our country. The discussion leader will be Mines Professor of Hydrology Kamini Singha, who was the 2019 Mines Faculty Senate Distinguished Lecturer on the topic of water supply.

The meeting will begin with City Councilor Jim Dale giving a brief encomium to Bill McKee, one of  Colorado’s water experts, who was to lead the discussion of this book.  Bill passed away suddenly in February.

You can join the discussion by registering in advance.
