Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning author Seamus McGraw, who will sign and discuss his new book, “A Thirsty Land: The Making of an American Water Crisis”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “A Thirsty Land” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

As a changing climate threatens the whole country with deeper droughts and more furious floods that put ever more people and property at risk, Texas has become a bellwether state for water debates. The most comprehensive—and comprehensible—book on contemporary water issues, “A Thirsty Land” delves deep into the challenges faced not just by Texas but by the nation as a whole, as we struggle to find a way to balance the changing forces of nature with our own ever-expanding needs. Part history, part science, part adventure story, and part travelogue, this book puts a human face on the struggle to master that most precious and capricious of resources.
