Wild Books @ Lunchtime

Dunedin City Library —

Join Neville Peat at the City Library from 12.15 to 12.45pm on Wednesday 24 April for highlights from his latest book "The Invading Sea" that shows the impact of climate change on our coast and is written for a general audience. Bring along your lunch and we will provide tea and coffee.

"As a major maritime nation, with vast coastlines, we have a big stake in the sea,'' Neville Peat

Neville will talk about why he felt this book had to be written with focus for this short talk on Dunedin and surrounding coastline.

"The Invading Sea" can be purchased after as the University Book Shop will be attending the event. 

Following is an extract from The Otago Daily Times interview with Neville when the book was launched October 2018:

"Two-thirds of Kiwis live within 5km of the sea.
The country has 11,000km of ocean coastline, including outlying islands, and another 8000km of inlets and harbour.
In the book, Mr Peat discusses how New Zealand has been found wanting on both coastal hazard preparedness and greenhouse gas mitigation."   Otago Daily Times
