‘Navigating Troubled Waters: Science and Coastal Management’

@ Quogue Village Hall  
Sunday, August 10th at 3pm

Co-hosted by CCQ and the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines , and moderated by PSDS director Dr. Rob Young, the presentation will be delivered by esteemed journalist, author and thought leader, Cornelia Dean.

Against the Tide: The Battle for America's BeachesHer first book, Against the Tide: The Battle for America’s Beaches, was published in 1999 by Columbia University Press and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.

She has since published Am I Making Myself Clear?: A Scientist’s Guide to Talking to the Public, and most recently, has focused on the misuse of scientific information in American public life.

As writer-in-residence at Brown University, current science writer and former science editor at The New York Times,  we are excited to hear Cornelia’s voice as we consider our own coastal management options in Quogue.
