A RIVER RUNS AGAIN: INDIA’S NATURAL WORLD IN CRISIS, FROM THE BARREN CLIFFS OF RAJASTHAN TO THE FARMLANDS OF KARNATAKA

A conversation by the Author -- (book signing and sales at the event)

In this book Meera Subramanian travels in search of the ordinary people and micro-enterprises rescuing India's natural world from crisis, from an engineer-turned-farmer bringing organic food to Indian plates, to well-intentioned cook stove designers seeking a smokeless fire. And in Bihar, she visits a bold young woman teaching young adolescents the fundamentals of sexual health and in the process, unleashes their untapped potential. In these true stories, Subramanian discovers both cautionary tales and renewed hope for a sustainable and prosperous future for India.
 

Meera Subramanian is an award-winning journalist whose work has been published in the New York Times, Nature, Virginia Quarterly Review, Orion, and elsewhere. She is an editor for Killing the Buddha and earned her graduate degree in journalism from New York University.
