In "World After Water", Abby Geni imagines a city flooded by toxic water too poisonous to drink. Four young boys resort to stealing filtered water from their wealthy neighbors in their struggle to survive. Geni wrote her story after spending time researching how climate change could change our day to day life. Hear Geni's thoughts on why her fiction focuses on the natural world and how science in literature can help us think about the future.
