Rebecca Solnit photoUtne Reader has named Rebecca Solnit one of its 25 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World, praising Solnit for telling a different story than the one told by mainstream media in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina—”a story of strength and resilience” that revealed “the courage and humanity displayed by the millions of volunteers who helped save New Orleans from extinction.”Infinite City cover

Solnit will celebrate the release of Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas at venues around the Bay Area this winter. Infinite City is Solnit’s reinvention of the traditional atlas, examining the layers of San Francisco’s cultural geography with the aid of cartographers, a designer, and 27 artists and writers, along with local experts on everything from labor history to butterfly territories.
