Current Book - April 2014

  • Flight Behavior
    by Barbara Kingsolver.
    Hosted by: Noah Diffenbaugh

    " The book our Resident Fellows assigned for my freshman dorm at Stanford (Granada!) was Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver. I loved it, and was inspired to read most of her books. Now that I've grown up to be a climate scientist, her book about climate change brings me full-circle to my undergraduate years at Stanford."

    Noah Diffenbaugh, associate professor of earth sciences and senior fellow in the Woods Institute for the Environment
