I'm donating copies of PIPE DREAMS!
PIPE DREAMS: The Urgent Global Quest to Transform the Toilet comes out on April 6, 2021. The publisher, Avid Reader Press/Simon & Schuster, calls it "a lively, informative, and humorous deep dive into the future of the toilet—from creative uses for harvested 'biosolids,' to the bold engineers dedicated to bringing safe sanitation to the billions of people worldwide living without."
Booklist calls it "well-written and researched, with much in-person investigation by the author . . . Pipe Dreams is engaging, informative, and an unexpected must-read for readers interested in sustainability, and should have a place in nearly every library.”
In that spirit, and as a way to give back to all of those who shared their experiences and knowledge with me, I plan to donate some copies to libraries in low-resource areas--especially those associated with institutions and organizations that educate sanitation experts, plan/implement sanitation projects, or advocate for better sanitation. These can be in any country, so long as I can get it there.
If you know of an institution or organization that would like a copy but would otherwise be unable to afford it, please let me know in this form.
I will NOT use the submitted information for any purposes other than organizing donations of PIPE DREAMS. But if you rather contact me another way, you can find my email address at
