Seward, Alaska – August 24, 2009—Bestselling author Bill Streever, PhD, will be presenting at the Alaska SeaLife Center on September 4, at 10 a.m. in the Center’s Bear Mountain Conference room.
Streever is the author of “Cold: Adventures in the World’s Frozen Places,” which the New York Times calls “an unusual and welcome addition to the literature of cold weather and the great north.” “Cold” chronicles a year of travels in cool climates, and spans science, history and geography in an exploration that the Dallas Morning News describes as “clear, concise, and poetic.”
Previously an assistant professor at University of Newscastle, Australia and lead scientist at the Army Corps of Engineers, Streever is currently the Environmental Program Studies Director for BP Exploration (Alaska) Inc. He is the author of several books and numerous journal articles.
Entrance to the event is free. Copies of “Cold” will be available for purchase and signing.
