Join the Connecticut Chapter as Alex Prud’homme discusses, The Ripple Effect.

Co-hosted by  Washington Environmental Council, Lake Waramaug Task Force & Washington Conservation Commission

Wykeham Room
Gunn Memorial Library
11 a.m.

Every time we use water, even for something as mundane  as washing our hands, spraying the lawn, or generating power for light,  it sets off deep and wide hydrologic ripple effects, with consequences that most of us are unaware  of.  Now we no longer have the luxury of ignorance. Like Daniel Yergin’s classic The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power, Prud’homme’s The Ripple Effect is a masterwork of investigation and dramatic narrative. Prud’homme introduces readers to an array of colorful, obsessive, brilliant and sometimes shadowy characters through whom these issues come alive. The Ripple Effect will change the way we think about the water we drink.

Copies will be available for signing. A coffee reception will be held prior to the author’s talk.

Alex Prud’homme is a native of New York City, with a BA in history from Middlebury College. After college, Alex embarked on a 3-month trip to India and Nepal that extended into a 2-year journey around the world. He wrote a journal of his many observations, the people he met along the way, and various work experiences, which ultimately inspired him to pursue a writing career.
