Vince Beiser: The World in a Grain

Vince Beiser: The World in a Grain

Friday 8 March, 6pm-7pm

Al Ras 1, InterContinental, DFC

Authors: Vince Beiser
After water and air, sand is the natural resource that we consume more than any other--even more than oil. Every concrete building and paved road on Earth, every computer screen and silicon chip, is made from sand. It's the ingredient that makes possible our cities, our science, our lives--and our future.

And, incredibly, we're running out of it.

Award-winning journalist Vince Beiser delves deep into this world, taking readers on a journey across the globe, from the United States to remote corners of India, China, and Dubai to explain why sand is so crucial to modern life.
