“Doom is normal,” said author David Gessner’s daughter. So Gessner set out to explore what the will would look like in 2062 when his daughter is his age. Today on the Morning Magazine, Gessner joined us in the studio to talk about how new book: A Traveler’s Guide to the End of the World: Tales of Fire, Wind, and Water.

Gessner’s book takes readers on a tour of the awe-inspiring and fragile destinations around the world to remind us that beauty and fun persist in the wake of climate change.

Gessner will present his book tonight at the Boulder Bookstore at 6:30 PM. Gessner’s friend and fellow writer, Mark Spitzer will join him. Spitzer’s new release, Monster Fishing: Caught in the Ethics of Angling, is being released posthumously.
