Love trash? See 'Gone Tomorrow' at La. Tech

This just in from the Tech news bureau:

"Journalist and filmmaker Heather Rogers will present a lecture on her new book titled 'Gone Tomorrow: The Hidden Life of Garbage' Thursday, Oct. 12, at 6:30 p.m. at Louisiana Tech.

"The lecture and the showing of a short documentary film (also called 'Gone Tomorrow') will be held in the auditorium of the Institute for Micromanufacturing. The presentation is part of the School of Architecture Lecture Series.

"In 'Gone Tomorrow,' Rogers takes the reader on what amounts to a tour through the underworld of garbage and brings meaning to the things that society discards.

"'Gone Tomorrow' also explores controversial topics like the politics of recycling and the export of trash to developing countries.

"The book was named an Editor’s Choice by the New York Times Book Review and a nonfiction choice by The (London) Guardian.

"For more information, call the School of Architecture at (318) 257-2816."
