What a fascinating conversation between Alex Hannaford and Bethany McLean, about her new book, SAUDI AMERICA: The Truth About Fracking and How It’s Changing the World. It’s a small book, for those with limited reading hours, but it offers a distinct and illuminating look at fracking (one you probably haven’t read before!)—the questionable economics, other motivating political forces and impacts, and one particularly fascinating, risk-driven character named Aubrey McClendon. Thanks to @bookpeople for partnering with us on another great edition of #atCentral at @austinpubliclibrary.
Next up for atCentral: Ben Fountain speaking with CBS News Correspondent Matthew Dowd about Fountain’s new work of nonfiction, Beautiful Country Burn Again on October 3 at 7pm!
