Conversation with the 2013 Orion Book Award Winning Author Craig Childs

Managing Editor Andrew Blechman speaks with Craig Childs, whose book Apocalyptic Planet: Field Guide to the Everending Earth won the 2013 Orion Book Award. Childs discusses the fate of our planet, the fate of humanity, and traveling to some of the harshest, most remote corners of our planet—including a hellacious camping expedition through a massive Iowa GMO cornfield—while exploring the cycles of life and death on a scale most of us rarely think about.
