Antonia will be joined by acclaimed actor, activist, and author Peter Coyote at Book Passage.

Professor Robert Bea, head of the Deepwater Horizon Study Group at the University of Berkeley, who has said of Black Tide, “Black Tide is extremely well researched, reasoned and written,” is an invited guest.

On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded 50 miles off the coast of Louisiana, killing eleven men, and unleashing an 80,000 barrel a day oil gusher. It became the largest oil disaster in American history, and it could happen again. As we prepare for Earth Day on April 22, we look to these events to help guide solutions for a secure energy future.

BLACK TIDE is more than a story of ruined beaches, dead wildlife, chemical dispersants, corporate spin, political machinations, and financial fallout. It is a riveting human drama filled with people whose lives will forever be defined as “before” and “after” the Gulf oil disaster.

“These remarkable stories—of loss, heroism, and culpability—are a vivid reminder that this catastrophe will be with us for decades.” –Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine.

“Black Tide is extremely well researched, reasoned and written.” –Dr. Robert Bea, Deepwater Horizon Study Group

“Black Tide is riveting, infuriating, and incredibly important to understand the places, politics, and people who survived the Gulf oil disaster.” –Rebecca Solnit, author of A Paradise Built in Hell.
