    Superman's Not Coming: Erin Brockovich on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    Superman's Not Coming: Erin Brockovich on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    Today, Shannon spoke with revered environmental activist Erin Brockovich about our nation's water crisis. We assume our water supply is safe because it is tested and treated by municipalities, but that isn't always the case.  Discovering impurities in a municipal water supply, and ultimately ensuring the situation is rectified, requires persistence, research, and commitment from community members. With the goal of educating and empowering communities in the fight for clean water, Erin Brockovich has written Superman's Not Coming: Our National Water Crisis and What We the People Can Do About It, which is essentially a step-by-step handbook for local citizens to stand up for themselves and their health. The book is packed with helpful information about water quality and community activism in accessible, easy-to-understand terms. 

    Erin Brockovich will be appearing at the virtual Miami Book Fair November 15-22, 2020. For more information about free registration for this and other virtual events at the fair, visit MiamiBookFair.com.

    Poisoned Water: Candy J. Cooper and Marc Aronson on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    Shannon welcomes Candy J. Cooper and Marc Aronson to discuss their book, Poisoned Water: How the Citizens of Flint, Michigan, Fought for Their Lives and Warned the Nation. In 2014, as part of a plan to save money, government officials decided to switch Flint, Michigan's water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River. Within months, many residents broke out in rashes. Soon, children stopped growing. Some people were hospitalized with mysterious illnesses; others died. Citizens of Flint protested that the water was dangerous. Despite what seemed so apparent from the murky, foul-smelling liquid pouring from the city’s faucets, officials refused to  listen. The residents later discovered the water had been poisoning thousands of people.
