On Tuesday, October 5, 2021, at 5:30pm EDT, Post and Courier Senior Projects Reporter Tony Bartelme, who also is a Pulitzer Center grantee, and photojournalist Lauren Petracca will come together for a lecture at the Charleston Public Library. Together, they will explore the connection between Greenland melting and its relationship to rising waters in Charleston. The conversation will be moderated by Glenn Smith, the Post and Courier’s public service and watchdog editor.
This event is free and open to the public, but it is requested that attendees reserve a ticket using this link. For those not able to attend the event live, there is an option to register virtually and receive a video link.
Petracca’s photographs from her work both in Charleston and in Greenland will be on display at the library from October 5 to November 8, 2021.
Bartelme’s reporting on the connection between Greenland and South Carolina is the second component in his Pulitzer Center-supported project Rising Waters: The Greenland Connection, which follows the project Rising Waters, a huge undertaking by a team of Post and Courier reporters to document and track the impact of increased flooding in the Charleston area over many months.
