Many people move to Miami for the weather. Our climate is like that of a tropical island; when it isnt hot and sunny, its stormy. Although this fair state feels the vicissitudes of daylight saving time, the other effects of climactic change typically dont disturb the Magic City. Which is what makes Bruce Stutzs latest nonfiction book, Chasing Spring: An American Journey Through a Changing Season, so refreshing to local, sunbaked readers. The former editor in chief of Natural History magazine has crafted a personal account that simultaneously charts a road trip to recovery and the fascinating, troubling effects of global warming. Tonight at 8:00 at Books & Books Stutz will share his stirring tale, which begins with heart surgery, meanders across the varied landscapes of America in a twenty year old Chevy Impala -- capturing the blossoming season in its verdant glory -- and ends with perpetual sunshine in Alaskas Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Admission is free. Learn more about the author at www.brucestutz.com.
