Kim Stanley Robinson’s Half Century Love Affair With the Sierra Nevada

Date and Time
Wednesday, March 15, 2023 7:00 PM (PT)

Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the world’s greatest living science fiction writers and political novelists. A New York Times bestseller and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards, he is the author of more than twenty books, including the Mars trilogy and The Ministry for the Future. Robinson, who lives in Davis, spends his summers backpacking in the Sierras and chronicles the geological and political changes he’s witnessed in the mountains over time in a new memoir.

Join literary critic Oscar Villalon and climate reporter Laura Klivans for a conversation with Robinson about his new book The High Sierra: A Love Story, a genre-shifting novel and atlas of the mountain range, and what our climate future has in store for this magisterial feature of the California landscape.
