Deep Read San Diego Salon

May 15, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm  |  Stone Brewing Liberty Station


Join fellow Deep Readers for a special event at Stone Brewing in Liberty Station on May 15, 2023, to discuss this year’s Deep Read book: Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future by Pulitzer Prize-winning science journalist Elizabeth Kolbert. We’ll learn about the stark changes taking place in the world and explore the efforts to adapt and survive in this era of climate change.


Please RSVP to reserve your spot at this exciting event, as space is limited.

As part of The Deep Read program of The Humanities Institute at UC Santa Cruz, this event is designed to invite curious minds like yours to think deeply about literature, art, and the most pressing issues of our day. Even if you haven’t read the book, we encourage you to come and enjoy the discussion and connect with fellow San Diego alumni.

Beer and light bites provided by Steve Wagner (Crown), a UC Santa Cruz alumnus & co-founder of Stone Brewing!
