Emergent Disorder book party

Emergent Disorder is the second book in Ralph Meima's trilogy exploring a future world struggling under the effects of a changed climate.  Like the first book (Fossil Nation), Emergent Disorder wraps a provocative set of questions about where we are headed in a rollicking narrative of adventure and intrigue that is hard to put down.

We'll have a chance to talk with the author, and among ourselves, about the book and the path forward.  And, by the way, it's inauguration day.
