  "Meet the Frackers" with Gregory Zuckerman '88, reporter for The Wall Street Journal

  Brandeis House, 12 East 77th Street, New York, NY
Join us for an inside look at how fracking began in the U.S., as told by Greg Zuckerman '88, special writer for the Wall Street Journal, in his new book, "The Frackers."

Everyone knew it was crazy to try to extract oil and natural gas buried in shale rock deep below the ground. Everyone, that is, except a few reckless who risked their careers to prove the world wrong.

No one understands these men their ambitions, personalities, methods and foibles better than award-winning WJS reporter Gregory Zuckerman. His exclusive access enabled him to get close to the frackers and chronicle the untold story of how they transformed the nation and the world. The result is a dramatic narrative tracking a brutal competition among headstrong drillers.

Activists argue that the same methods that are creating so much new energy are also harming our water supply and threatening environmental chaos. "The Frackers" tells the story of the angry opposition unleashed by this revolution and explores just how dangerous fracking really is.

Admission is complimentary. Light refreshments will be served.

RSVP by April 29.
