The Death and Life of the Great Lakes
57th Street Books, Chicago IL
Seminary Coop Bookstore
The Great Lakes—Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario, and Superior—hold 20 percent of the world’s supply of surface fresh water and provide sustenance, work, and recreation for tens of millions of Americans. But they are under threat as never before, and their problems are spreading across the continent. The Death and Life of the Great Lakes is prize-winning reporter Dan Egan’s compulsively readable portrait of an ecological catastrophe happening right before our eyes, blending the epic story of the lakes with an examination of the perils they face and the ways we can restore and preserve them for generations to come.

Peering into the Cosmic Maelstrom
Cernan Space Center, River Grove IL
C2ST
Recently, the collision of two neutron stars was discovered by astronomers using both telescopes and the LIGO gravitational-wave observatory. This is a new way to do astronomy -- simultaneously studying the Cosmos using both light and gravity. It provides a powerful new way to understand the lives of stars, how they die, and how they join the galactic graveyard. Professors Vicky Kalogera, Shane Larson, Raffaella Margutti and Wen-fai Fong will describe their roles and experiences in the making of the ground-breaking discovery.
