The Ministry for the Future: A Novel with Kim Stanley Robinson

Fiction

The Ministry for the Future is a masterpiece of the imagination, using fictional eyewitness accounts to tell the story of how climate change will affect us all. Its setting is not a desolate, postapocalyptic world, but a future that is almost upon us. Chosen by Barack Obama as one of his favorite books of the year, this extraordinary novel from visionary science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson will change the way you think about the climate crisis. This event is part of the "Environments" track, which we proudly present in partnership with the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities at Vanderbilt University.
