NEW EVENT TIME: Ian Urbina - The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier

Upcoming Event
Sunday, August 18, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

This event, originally scheduled for 5pm this same day, has been pushed up to 1pm

A Pulitzer and Polk Award-winning investigative journalist, Urbina builds on his New York Times series for a gripping first-hand look at the high seas. Sprawling and difficult to regulate, the oceans teem with pirates, traffickers, and poachers as well as vigilante conservationists and floating abortion providers. Even legal enterprises, such as the fishing, oil, and shipping industries, are often rife with exploitation and abuse. In writing that’s by turns harrowing, suspenseful, and funny, Urbina exposes the true conditions mariners endure, chronicles a near-mutiny aboard a police ship, joins a maritime repo-man, and synthesizes his wide-ranging experiences into a revelatory profile of the global economy.
