The Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) is set to host an author talk with Aric McBay, a local author and activist, who will discuss his latest book, “Inversion.” The event, focusing on climate awareness and storytelling, is scheduled for January 27 at 2 p.m. at the Central Branch.

“Inversion” delves into the life of a nomadic population thriving in a biodiverse world while facing the dual forces of destruction and renewal brought about by fires. Aric McBay, acclaimed for his previous works such as “Kraken Calling,” “Full Spectrum Resistance” (Volumes 1 and 2), “Deep Green Resistance,” and “Peak Oil Survival,” brings a unique perspective to the topic of climate change.

Librarian Jake Miller, responsible for Adult Programming at KFPL, highlighted the significance of McBay’s work, stating, “Aric’s stories go beyond our community, making sure everyone is aware of climate issues. This discussion offers more than just insights into climate awareness; it offers a fascinating journey into the artistry and research behind his storytelling.”

The event will feature a one-on-one interview format, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience. Those interested in attending this insightful discussion are required to register in advance.
