Join For Love of Water (FLOW) on Wednesday, December 8th at 6:00 PM for a conversation with author Dave Dempsey on his newly updated book, Great Lakes for Sale. Sally Cole-Misch, author of The Best Part of Us, and longtime communicator for the International Joint Commission’s Great Lakes Regional Office, will facilitate the conversation with Dave. This free online event will include insights, anecdotes, readings, book giveaways, and a question-and-answer session with attendees.
In Great Lakes for Sale, Dave Dempsey offers surprising, even controversial, ideas on how to fight water commercialization, curb abuse of the Great Lakes Compact, and devise plans for limited sharing of the Great Lakes to forestall humanitarian disasters. If the Great Lakes are to remain great, new thinking and action will be required as global water crises are inflamed by climate change.
