You're invited to an event with author and documentarian David Baker as he presents "Science to Story: The Power of Narrative in Communicating an Ecological Crisis." During the talk, Baker will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the process of writing his new book, The Lost Continent.
More than half of the world's coral reefs have been damaged or destroyed in the past 50 years due to human activity. The Lost Continent is a poignant tribute that helps readers gain a deeper understanding of coral reefs and why they are vital to the health of our oceans—and the survival of our planet. It highlights the incredible conservation and restoration strides being made around the world to save them.
David will share several stunning images from the book, read excerpts, and chat with the audience during a Q&A. Our friends at Grass Roots Books will be at the event with copies of The Lost Continent, and David will do a book signing following his talk.
Free and open to all (note that parking is free in all OSU lots after 5 p.m.)
David Baker is a writer, photographer, and filmmaker. His feature documentaries include Saving Atlantis, produced in collaboration with the Rebecca Vega Thurber Lab.
