Orrin H. Pilkey’s Fall Tour for Sea Level Rise

Orrin H. Pilkey, co-author of Sea Level Rise: A Slow Tsunami on America’s Shores (Duke University Press), will be reading and discussing his new book at various locations throughout the Carolinas this September. For some of these events, he will be in conversation with Gilbert M. Gaul, author of The Geography of Risk: Epic Storms, Rising Seas and the Costs of America’s Coasts (Farrar Straus and Giroux). They’re calling it the “Old Men and the Sea Tour,” and we hope you can make it to one of the events.

Acknowledging the impending worldwide catastrophe of rising seas in the twenty-first century, Sea Level Rise outline the impacts on the United States’ shoreline and argue that the only feasible response along much of the U.S. shoreline is an immediate and managed retreat. It’s a must-read for anyone who lives or works near the coast and who cares about the future of our beaches and coastal communities.
