Virtual Event: John Rember and A Hundred Little Pieces on the End of the World
This August, we are excited to host author John Rember in celebration of his new book A Hundred Little Pieces on the End of the World. We will be streaming this reading and discussion live on our Facebook page on Thursday, August 6th at 6pm MST. We are proud to be partnering with Trees, Water, & People on this event.
There are 25 spots available for attendees to participate in the Zoom meeting where they will be able to interact with John and the representative from TWP directly. These will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. General Admission attendees will still be able to view the event on our Facebook page and questions via comments section.

Written with clarity, tenacity, humor, and warmth, A Hundred Little Pieces on the End of the World attempts to find tolerable ethical positions in the face of barely tolerable events—and the real possibility of an intolerable future. It is both a collection of gentle-spirited wisdom and a rumination on ruin, as if distilled in equal measure from the spirits of Norman Maclean’s A River Runs Through It and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.
Rember examines the practical and ethical dilemmas of climate change, population, resource depletion, and mass extinction. At the same time, he never forgets those improbable connections between human beings that lead to moments of joy, empathy, and grace.
