Taylor Brorby is a poet, essayist and activist who responds to the boom in hydraulic fracturing in his beloved home state of North Dakota by writing poems and essays, engaging in action and civil disobedience. His lyrical, moving call to action is grounded in love of place and commitment to the future. Brorby calls us to “wake the frack up” and defend the places we love before they are destroyed.

There will be a book signing at the talk. His books: Fracture: Essays, Poems and Stories on Fracking in America and Coming Alive: Action and Civil Disobedience will be available for sale.
