Go back to the dark days of the “recycling wars” at this event with former Ecology Center board member, John Byrne Barry. He’ll be sharing his new novel, Wasted, featuring a murder in the “Recycle Berkeley” yard, Thursday, October 8th at the Ecology Center. While the book is fiction, we’ll pull out some real photos and publications from our archives for a glimpse back at our long history. This event is free and open to all.
More about Wasted: timid bookkeeper Brian Hunter investigates the “recycling wars,” finds the body of his friend Doug crushed in an aluminum bale, and hunts down the murderer, all the while trying to win the heart of Barb, Doug’s former lover, now a suspect in his murder. Part mystery, part love triangle, part midlife crisis, and part political satire, Wasted explores rich and resonant themes of reinvention, transition, and discarding that which no longer serves us.
