The ritual of drinking tea transcends all boundaries – to usher in a new day, to hangout with friends, and to relax after a long and hard day. How many cups do you drink in a day? Now imagine a future where this ubiquitous experience may become rare. A frighteningly probable future - precisely the subject of the book chosen by Silicon Valley Reads annual community program to explore the impact of climate change in our lives.
Itaranta's 2013 debut novel, and a winner of several Finnish awards, envisions a world where global warming has changed the world’s geography and its politics. Wars are waged over water, and China rules Europe. Imaginative and engaging, lyrical and poignant, Memory of Water is an indelible novel that portrays a future that is all too possible.
