Earth Day and The Pulitzer Prizes

earth, Earth Day, planet, writing, Pulitzer Prize, winners

In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to draw attention to Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Kolbert, for her book The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History. She writes about the devastating impact mankind has had on many other species occupying the planet. It is important for us to consider her words and to act to preserve the vital and delicate ecosystems both near and far from our homes. This is not only responsible, it is also necessary for our survival.

You can check out the list of Pulitzer Prize winners here. Were you excited about the winners? Do you plan to read any of the writing by the winners?
