Discussion & Book Signing
When the Exxon Valdez ran aground on Bligh Reef, the devastation it caused stunned the world. Angela Day revisits that terrible environmental disaster 25 years later, reminding us of the failures on the ship and off, and the consequences to locals, communities, and the fishing industry.
Angela Day writes about the relationship between people and the environment, and the role that regulatory policies and politics play in those relationships. Her writing is inspired by travels throughout Alaska and the American West. As an analyst, she has conducted research on regulatory agencies and citizen involvement in industry oversight. She has published case studies for teaching graduate students in schools of public policy and administration, and helped to develop and teach courses in these subjects. Day's ongoing research and writing are focused on the challenges of preventing accidents that may harm workers, communities and the environment. Currently a doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington, she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, a Masters in Public Administration, and a certificate in Narrative Nonfiction Writing. She lives in Snohomish, Washington with her husband Bobby Day.
