Hot Topic: Climate Change Tome is UW Common Book
It’s official: The next UW common book is Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change. In April, 16 UW faculty members, administrators and students recommended Elizabeth Kolbert's collection of essays about global warming as the 2007-2008 common book. The book grew out of “The Climate of Man,” a three-part series published in The New Yorker during the spring of 2005. The series won wide recognition: the National Magazine Award, the National Academy of Sciences Communication Award and an award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Field Notes will be distributed to approximately 5,500 new students this summer as part of their introduction to campus. The UW Alumni Association will help alumni book clubs interested in discussing the common book. Visit UWalum.com for more information.
