In Conversation With Author James Bradley: Zoom Webinar

By No Comments

James Bradley is the author of four novels – Wrack, The Deep Field, The Resurrectionist and Clade, and a book of poetry, Paper Nautilus. His books have won or been shortlisted for a number of major Australian and international literary awards and have been widely translated.

As part of this free live, online author talk, James will discuss with you his latest book Ghost Species. This Zoom Webinar is a collaboration between NSW Public Libraries including Central West Libraries. The conversation will be facilitated by Amy Heap, Outreach and Promotions Co-ordinator, Riverina Regional Library.

Set against the backdrop of hastening climate catastrophe, Ghost Species is an exquisitely beautiful and deeply affecting exploration of connection and loss in an age of planetary trauma. When scientist Kate Larkin joins a secretive project to re-engineer the climate by resurrecting extinct species, she becomes enmeshed in another, even more clandestine program to recreate our long-lost relatives, the Neanderthals. But when the first of the children, a girl called Eve, is born, Kate finds herself torn between her duties as a scientist and her urge to protect their time-lost creation. For as Eve grows to adulthood she and Kate must face the question of who and what she is. Is she natural or artificial? Human or non-human? And perhaps most importantly, as civilisation unravels around them, is Eve the ghost species, or are we? Thrillingly original, Ghost Species is embedded with a deep love and understanding of the natural world.

We normally have a qualified Breastfeeding Counsellor available so bring along any questions for a confidential discussion if you wish.

As we are volunteer based, any help to bring some light morning tea is much appreciated, but certainly not expected (no nuts please).

ORM Talks: Climate change and our life support system

By No Comments

Our climate system is changing rapidly as a result of the burning of fossil fuels. In Australia, we are already experiencing severe drought, increased bushfire and flooding risk, coastal erosion and unprecedented heatwaves. The changing climate is affecting all sectors – our economy, food security, health, and communities. But as we have seen recently with the catastrophic bushfires, it is our environmental life support system that is feeling the impacts most significantly, with climate change exacerbating many other factors that lead to species loss and habitat decline.

This talk will summarise the latest global and national trends in the climate and identify the most important observed and future impacts, with an emphasis on biodiversity. It will also outline what we need to do to achieve a stable climate by the second half of this century, and how we need to change our approach to conservation, but also highlight the many exciting opportunities we have to ensure a viable future, both for the planet’s species and our children.

Light refreshments included.

Limited spaces, bookings essential.
