Fire and Ice

Created in Celebration of Earth Month

Welcome to the Fire and Ice online exhibit and physical book display where you will find books/ebooks, videos, and lectures compiled in celebration of Earth Month.

Fire and Ice is a conceptual display bringing together two of Earth’s transformative elements, displayed to guide viewers on a journey of exploration focused on climate change and sustainability viewed through themes of fire and ice. Explore fiction and nonfiction books, poetry,  and media illuminating anthropogenic impacts upon Earth’s systems. Topics include fire (both its natural role and the exacerbated devastation linked to human activity), water (in oceans and desert riparian environments), desert ecosystems, glaciers, the polar ice caps, extinction events, desert plants and animals, the culture of the Southwest, and more. The display is curated by Wes Edens and René Tanner with input from the ASU Library and campus communities in recognition and celebration of Earth Month.

View the book display on the first floor of the Noble Library beginning around April 5 through the spring semester.

Get started exploring by taking our quiz to test your environmental knowledge:

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
