Elizabeth Kolbert has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1999; before that, she was a reporter for The New York Times. Her article on climate change, “The Climate of Man,” won a National Magazine Award and was the basis for her book, Field Notes from a Catastrophe (2006). Her most recent book is The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History (2014) which Michiko Kakutani says “is the very model of explanatory journalism, making highly complex theories and hypotheses accessible to even the most science-challenged of readers, while providing a wonderfully tactile sense of endangered (or already departed) species and their shrinking habitats.”
