Dublin Library welcomes local author Zac Unger discussing his latest book, Never Look a Polar Bear in the Eye: A Family Field Trip to the Arctic's Edge in Search of Adventure, Truth, and Mini-Marshmallows on Saturday, October 19 at 2:00 PM.
In Never Look A Polar Bear In The Eye, self-proclaimed tree hugger Zac Unger heads north to Churchill, Maniitoba, the so-called “polar bear capital of the world,” a place that attracts10,000 visitors a year seeking to come face to face with a polar bear. New Yorker Magazine calls Unger the “perfect guide: droll, irreverent, and questioning, equal parts Bill Bryson and Bill McKibben. His adventure reveals not only life on the Arctic’s edge, but also the surprising facts about something we thought we knew about climate change.” Both a rollicking read and a serious and surprising look at “polar bear science,” Unger’s book is both for those who want to save the planet, and those who aren’t yet convinced it needs saving.
Zac Unger is a firefighter, paramedic, and author of Working Fire: The Making of a Fireman. He has written for Slate, the Economist, Men’s Journal, and more. He lives in Oakland, California.
