A Hole in the Wind: A Climate Scientist’s Bicycle Journey Across the United States

Library Program for Adults

Hole in the Wind Book CoverGoodrich David-image appears with permissionAfter a distinguished career in climate science in Geneva, David Goodrich returned to the U.S. to find the reality of climate change transformed into a tangled political issue. Concerned about the misinformation that dominates politics and the media, he rode his bike 4,200 miles to the Oregon coast, talking with the people he met along the way during this ultimate road trip. Beautifully simple, direct and honest, A Hole in the Wind is a refreshing ride through a difficult and controversial topic, and a rich read that makes you glad to be alive. This event is co-sponsored with Cycling Concepts in Glastonbury. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. Registration is required and begins August 31, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

“This cyclist's view of how things really are effectively cuts across head-butting arguments about global warming. A compelling narrative enlivened as much by the author's encounters on the road as by his skillful unfolding of scientific knowledge.” – Kirkus Reviews
