A Conversation with Kate Beaton (In-Person)

New York Times bestselling cartoonist Kate Beaton (Hark! A Vagrant) brings a fascinating look at the human and environmental toll of the fossil fuel industry in her first full-length graphic narrative, Ducks: Two Years in The Oil Sands. In conversation with journalist Elizabeth Spiers, Beaton discusses her formative experience of earning a living – and navigating survival – in the remote, beautiful, often brutal wilds of Alberta, where East Coast migrants flock to find opportunity in an oil industry that simultaneously exploits their humanity and the riches of the land.
