After the Flare travels to Antarctica

After the Flare is in Antarctica! I was thrilled to learn that musician, science educator, and scuba diver Henry Kaiser has read the novel.

Henry’s note feels serendipitous, because I had seen a documentary by Werner Herzog called Encounters at the End of the World that featured him and his work with Weddell seals. Even weirder, at my event at the New America foundation in early November, I discussed Antarctica with Astrobiologist Lucianne Walkowicz — who herself was featured in a Werner Herzog documentary.

Henry’s work is diverse and inspiring. He has collaborated with leading musicians all over the world. To learn more about his extraordinary encounters with Weddell seals beneath the sea ice, you can watch his short talk here online over at Ink Talks.
