In this 2009 POWI Book Presentation, veteran Arctic journalist and author, Ed Struzik presented his latest book, The Big Thaw: Travels in the Melting North. Showcasing photographs from his eleven trips throughout the north, he documents the profound changes to the shape of the Arctic as it stands at the frontlines of global warming, and its possible future as the center of international struggle, underground smuggling and ecological disaster. Struzik is a naturalist-turned journalist who has spent the better part of the past 29 years focusing on the Arctic. He is the recipient of more than 30 awards for his writing including the Knight Science Fellowship at Harvard and MIT, the Southam Fellowship at the University of Toronto and the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy.
