San Francisco writer Rebecca Solnit explores people’s capacity to rise to major disasters with creativity and courage. She looks at moments of altruism, resourcefulness, and generosity that arise amid grief and disruption and considers their implications for everyday life.

Solnit appeared in 2010 on the release of her two books, Paradise in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities That Arise in Disaster and Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas.
