We’re ecstatic for Geoff Dembicki who has won the 2017 Dave Greber Freelance Writers Book Award for Social Justice Writing for the chapter “Staying Alive in Paris”, from his book ARE WE SCREWED? How a New Generation is Fighting to Survive Climate Change. The book was published by Bloomsbury in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. in August.
Anton Mueller, Executive Editor of Bloomsbury USA, has acquired world rights to Geoff Dembicki’s first book. Are We Screwed? A Millennial’s Guide to Climate Change keys off 28-year-old Dembicki’s dispatches for Vice, Salon, The Tyee, and others to explain the massive societal shifts Millennials are creating in their response to global warming.
