Gaslight: The Atlantic Coast Pipeline/Fight for America's Energy Future

Meeting Room

Thursday, June 13, 6:30 p.m. at the Staunton Public Library, 2nd Floor Meeting Room

An evening with Jonathan Mingle, author of Gaslight: The Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the Fight for America's Energy Future, a chronicle of the efforts of the citizens of the Shenandoah Valley and Allegheny highlands to derail Dominion Energy's Atlantic Coast Pipeline from 2014 - 2020. Vivid and suspenseful, gut-wrenching and insightful, Gaslight is more than the chronicle of a turning point in American history. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the dark, overlooked story of America’s “favorite fossil fuel,” and the immense future stakes of the energy choices we face today. Since Augusta County was slated to have more miles of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (57) than any other community along the 600 mile long route that started in W.Va., went across Virginia and then deep in N.C., much of this book is about Staunton's own community and how we, collectively, stopped a massive corporation.
