Good questions from audience at Buffalo Street Books

ITHACA, New York - It was a beautiful afternoon in Ithaca Thursday when I gave a short version of my talk, "Fracking Fiction: You Can't Make This Stuff Up."

It was beautiful enough that it was hard to leave my dock on Seneca Lake and drive over the hill to Buffalo Street Books.

But as has been the case everywhere I have been speaking lately, the audience was very receptive and had plenty of good questions, including some from a high school classmate, Ward Romer, who lives in Ithaca.

Among the group also was a couple from Germany who travel annually to Ithaca. They were appalled at some of the tales I related and we had a good discussion about how far along Germany is with its  renewable energy efforts compared to the U.S.

We talked at some length about the EPA-induced chemical release into the Animas River in Colorado, the subject of my column in the Friday Finger Lakes Times newspaper of Geneva, NY.

My next talk is scheduled for Flagstaff, Az. in late September, followed by the Green Festival in Los Angeles, Saturday Sept. 26 at noon.

  1. I am really enjoying your book, and I could tell even through this is Fiction, how some of this is really happening around the country, I am Glad Brooks, let me know about your book I am almost finished with it. I am sharing it on my Facebook page as well. If I lived closer I would like to hear you speak and go to one of your book signing events. This did not have a way to let you know who I am so I don't mind giving you my name Carolyn Childs I think what you writing about is important, and more people need to be aware of it. If it was not for Brooks saying something in class one day, I had no idea this was happening, I am looking forward to reading your next book as well.
