Ignition Book Launch

Members of the Council on the Uncertain Human Future came together at MASSMoCA on Thursday, October 19th to celebrate the launch of Ignition: Lighting Fires in a Burning World—a new book by CUHF Council member M.R. O’Connor on the history and powerful phenomenon of wildfire. Described as “gutsy, clear-eyed, and surrisingly touching”, Ignition offers a wildly hopeful vision of an alternative environmental future.

Joining M.R. O’Connor in conversation with guests at MASSMoCA’s R+D Store, was fellow Council member, Meehan Crist.

The event was held as part of a larger retreat with the CUHF Journalists + Writers Council—a gathering of distinguished women journalists and writers, co-hosted by Sarah Buie and Kathleen Dean Moore, who have been meeting since the summer of 2022.
