“The Age of Miracles” by Karen Thompson Walker
A gripping and unique coming-of-age at the end of the world story. 11-year-old Julia wakes up one morning to the news that the rotation of the earth has begun to slow, throwing the environment into disarray. Julia is also coping with the fissures in her family, the loss of friends, the hopeful anguish of love and other normal disasters of everyday life. The audiobook is read by Emily Janice Card.
“The Future” by Al Gore
This audiobook, read by the former Vice President himself, offers a frank assessment of six critical drivers of global change in the decades to come – economic globalization, worldwide digital communications, a growing balance of global power, unsustainable population growth, scientific revolution and disruption of ecosystems. A sobering but important and smart discussion of our actions and their implications for the future.
