National Writers Series: Dan Egan

Dan Egan is a journalist and two-time finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. He wrote “The Death and Life of the Great Lakes” about environmental threats to the lakes. Now he’s written a book called “The Devil’s Element: Phosphorus and a World Out of Balance.” It tells the fascinating story of an element that was discovered in the 17th century and became essential to producing food for a growing population. But its overuse has had ecological consequences. Egan spoke with Interlochen Public Radio’s environmental reporter Patrick Shea at the City Opera House in Traverse City.
