Author Event: The Conceivable Future @ Central

State Sen. Meghan Kallman and Josephine Ferorelli talk about their book: The Conceivable Future: Planning Families and Taking Action in the Age of Climate Change (Rowman & Littlefield, 2024) by Meghan Kallman and Josephone Ferorelli; Foreword by Elizabeth Rush

In The Conceivable Future, authors Meghan Elizabeth Kallman and Josephine Ferorelli explore the ways in which the climate crisis is affecting our personal decisions about family planning, parenting, and political action. This book offers fresh, timely answers to questions such as: How do I decide to have a baby when there's the threat of environmental collapse? How do I parent a child in the middle of the climate crisis? What can I actually do to help stop global warming?

Drawing from their decade of work with the organization Conceivable Future, Kallman, a sociologist and Rhode Island State Senator, and Ferorelli, an activist and former Climate Bureau editor, offers both informed perspective and practical steps for taking meaningful action in combating the climate crisis, while also making smart, balanced decisions when it comes to starting and maintaining a family.
