Metcalf Institute welcomes alumni, Madeline Ostrander and Christine Woodside, for a hybrid in-person and virtual discussion of Ostrander’s brand-new book, At Home on an Unruly Planet.

In At Home, Ostrander, who frequently reports on climate change, energy, and environmental justice, offers four vivid accounts of American communities finding hope, solutions, and resilience amid the floods, storms, and wildfires stoked by climate change. Her book “reflects on what it means to make a home in this era of upheaval and transition.” Woodside is a writer, historian, editor, lecturer at the University of Connecticut, and former chair of the Metcalf Institute Advisory Board whose work focuses on the environment and American history.
