An Evening with Acclaimed Energy Journalist and Author, Andrew Nikiforuk
Investigative journalist Andrew Nikiforuk has been writing about Canada's oil and gas industry for over 20 years. Now, in his new book Slick Water, Nikiforuk recounts the story of oil patch consultant-turned folk hero Jessica Ernst as she fights to save her land from the damaging effects of hydraulic fracturing.
In this live event, moderated by The Tyee's founding editor, David Beers, Nikiforuk will share stories from his extensive reporting on Canada's energy sector, including a history of the fracking industry and an account of how the industry has broken earthquake records in B.C., Alberta and Oklahoma. Nikiforuk will also discuss his new book, Slick Water.
Audience members are invited to participate in a lively Q&A session, and join us for a reception following the event.
Pre-order a copy of Slick Water at a discount with your ticket, and get it signed by author Andrew Nikiforuk at the reception. Fifteen per cent of all book sales go to a legal fund to support Jessica Ernst.
