Journalist and author Maya Rao will talk about her new book Great American Outpost: Dreamers, Mavericks, and the Making of an Oil Frontier, which looks at the recent boom and bust of oil drilling in North Dakota. Great American Outpost is a surreal, lyrical work of narrative nonfiction that portrays how the largest domestic oil discovery in half a century transformed a forgotten corner of the American West into a crucible of breakneck capitalism. Rao is a Washington correspondent for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. The event is free and open to the public.
