Shale Play

Acclaimed poet, Julia Spicher Kasdorf and award-winning documentary photographer, Steven Rubin, (faculty, Penn State University) will discuss their book, "Shale Play: Poems and Photographs from the Fracking Fields," on Tuesday, April 9th from 2-4pm in the 2nd Floor Apse of KFL. 

Shale Play explores the small towns, farms, and forests of Appalachian Pennsylvania, gathering the stories of these places and the working people who inhabit them. "Shale Play" refers to a region exploited for its natural gas by means of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling - transient industrial processes that often occur far from the populations that benefit from them.
