Join author and journalist Seamus McGraw for a discussion of his new book, The End of Country , which explores the Marcellus shale gas industry's impact on rural life. Tom Brokaw calls the book "a cautionary tale... required reading for all those tempted by the calling cards of easy money and precarious peace of mind."
Jennifer Szweda Jordan, host of The Allegheny Front, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Pipeline editor, Erich Schwartzel, will moderate the evening with McGraw, following his readings from the book. Award-winning science reporter Reid Frazier, who covers gas drilling for The Allegheny Front, will be on hand to discuss the book and the ongoing impacts of Marcellus development. There will be opportunities for audience questions. Copies of McGraw's book will be available for purchase and signing.
6:30-8 at WYEP Community Broadcast Center on Pittsburgh's South Side (67 Bedford Square, Pittsburgh 15203) The event is free, but please RSVP .
