Fighting for the World, Presented with NYU’s 370 J Project

Water has taken over a hot world and few places survive, but a magical place called Garbagetown and a girl full of love. Greed runs rampant when a powerful new metal arrives on earth in the wake of a meteor shower, spawning a resource frenzy that engulfs a small community. Join Lincoln Michel (The Body Scout) as he leads a conversation with award-winning author Benjamin Percy (The Ninth Metal) and New York Times bestselling author Catherynne M. Valente (The Past is Red) discuss the environmental critique within their books and the response of human nature in the face of abundance and desperation.
