Eliza Griswold Uncovers the Human Cost of Fracking by NYPL Podcasts April 28, 2019

Journalist, Eliza Griswold just won a Pulitzer Prize and a Bernstein Award for her recent book, Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America. Even at its most basic level, the book is a fascinating story about the energy boom’s relationship to the natural land. But it’s also a moving portrait of a family—a resolute mother trying to care for her two children, sickened by the fracking fallout. Griswold sat down with NYPL’s Gwen Glazer to talk about the making of this story, immersion journalism, and where things stand in rural America today.
