“Every march is an act of faith in this way: you have to trust your story will braid into history, even if you’ll never be able to tease out its thread.” – Daniel Sherrell
Reading Public Library, Reading, MA —Daniel Sherrell’s first book is a hauntingly personal account about fighting for a world that may not exist for future generations. Warmth: Coming of Age at the End of Our World —part memoir, part critical analysis, part love letter—lays bare the realities of climate change pleading with readers to act courageously to alter the narrative in front of them.
