Please join the Lillian Goldman Law Library and the Yale Environmental Law Association for a Book Talk with Scott Russell Sanders on his latest book, Dancing in Dreamtime. Commentary provided by Prof. Doug Kysar.

Fans today may be surprised to learn Scott Russell Sanders was previously one of the brightest science-fiction newcomers of the 1980s. In Dancing in Dreamtime, he returns to his roots, exploring both inner and outer space in a speculative collection of short stories. At a time when humankind faces unprecedented, global-scale challenges from climate change, loss of biodiversity, dwindling vital resources, and widespread wars, this collection of planetary tales will strike a poignant chord with the reader. Sanders has created worlds where death tolls rise due to dream deprivation, where animals only exist in mechanical form, and where poisoned air forces people to live in biodomes. Never before has Sanders’ writing been so relevant and never before have the lessons in these stories been so important.
Scott Russell Sanders is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English at Indiana University.
Doug Kysar is the Joseph M. Field ’55 Professor of Law at Yale Law School.
