Join Pulitzer Center grantee Eli Kintisch on Sunday, October 16, 2016, for "Cold Vengeance: The Epic Story of Humanity and Arctic" at American University.

Kintisch explores the Arctic's history and modern unraveling through photos, video footage and the stories of the region's inhabitants, explorers and scientists. The Arctic is warming at twice the global average rate, but the effects of its thaw could affect billions far from its frozen shores.

Kintisch is a Washington, D.C.-based, award-winning correspondent for Science magazine who has traveled to seven Arctic nations since 2013 and has witnessed the thawing of the region. Last year, an article he wrote on how the Arctic might be impacting global weather was included in the annual Best American Science and Nature Writing anthology.

American University is a Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium partner.

The event is free and open to the public but reservations are requested.
