The book was a 2023 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in General Nonfiction. According to the Pulitzer Prize website, Rising is a "rigorously reported story about American vulnerability to rising seas, particularly disenfranchised people with limited access to the tools of rebuilding."
Rush's creative nonfiction approach makes real and palpable the numerous implications of sea- level rise. In place of statistical charts and tables, the author crafts a series of short narratives that illustrate how rising waters are "not discerning" in how they indelibly and inevitably affect people and places, history and time.
We will feature author Elizabeth Rush for a series of online events throught the academic year; the first event will be during the last week of September 2023. The year-long Common Reading experience will also include a variety of related activities, lectures, and events. Details will be made available as they become finalized.
