Boom Bust Boom: A Conversation with Bill Carter

November 7, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

“As talk began of reopening the copper mine in Bill Carter’s adopted home of Bisbee, Ariz., the author and filmmaker launched an investigation into the history of the copper-mining industry and its impact—economic, environmental, and otherwise—on communities. His search for answers led him throughout the state, the country, the world, to the doorsteps of miners and moguls, and Boom, Bust, Boom is Carter’s powerful narrative about his pursuit of “the metal that runs the world” and how far we will go to get it. Carter is not a preacher of environmentalism nor a corporate
apologist. He just wants to understand.” Pete Maden, “The Daily Beast”
