Campus Book Project

As part of ONU's Polar Bear Nation year-long series of events and activities, alumni are invited to participate in the upcoming Campus Book Project.

The ONU community is invited to read the book "Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature and Climate Change," by New Yorker journalist and writer, Elizabeth Kolbert who tackles the controversial subject of global warming. Kolbert will be on campus to make a public presentation about her book on March 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Freed Center for the Performing Arts.

Columbus area alumni are invited to a special discussion about the book on Feb. 26 at the Safari Golf Club, across the street from the Columbus Zoo. The discussion will be led by Barb Revard, director of program planning for the zoo. For details, see Columbus Book Discussion.

Alumni are cordially invited to campus for the March 13 presentation by Kolbert and for the reception and book signing to follow. 

The book is available to interested alumni for $12.00, shipping and handling included. Proceeds from this book sale will go to the designated charity Polar Bears International. To order, contact Annmarie Baumgartner, coordinator of Alumni Clubs, in the Alumni Office at (419) 772-2729 or a-baumgartner.2@onu.edu. Books are still available.
