Meeting Room 1

Listen and and engage with local author Aric McBay as he promotes his debut work of fiction Kraken Calling.

Aric McBay is an organizer, farmer and author of numerous titles centered around climate change.

His latest work, Kraken Calling, is set between 2028 and 2051 when a radical movement named Kraken grows in the shadows. During this time, an oppressive regime has taken control after a series of epidemics, economic shortages, and ecological disasters. The population suffers ruthless “triage” at the hands of an Emergency Authority that cares only for its own inner circle. Revolutionaries struggle for survival and support. In the city and on a remote farm, regular people try to stay out of the conflict. But no one can avoid the coming storm.

This event will consist of short readings from the new book, and a presentation followed by a Q&A session with attendees.
