The Irma Diaries transposes readers to The Virgin Islands on 6th September, 2017 and into the shoes of islanders on the frontlines of climate change. In a very intimate, personal style, The Irma Diaries captures the harrowing yet amazing, inspiring, and at times amusing accounts of the ordinary turned extraordinary people who battled through Hurricane Irma, minute by minute, and came out alive.
The Irma Diaries was written to stir global attention and action on climate change, to help rebuild the lives of those impacted by Hurricane Irma and to help The Virgin Islands adapt to continuing climate change impacts. As such, 1 percent of book proceeds will be donated to each of the 20 plus contributors of survivor stories and 25 percent of proceeds to The Virgin Islands Climate Change Trust Fund in perpetuity.
I really believe these stories can reach the world and make an impact. I’ve not been able to get a whole lot of visabiliy at COP so far and am hopeful that you may be able to assist in that perhaps through an interview or other means. I’m available for the remainder for the week and look forward to your reply on publicity opportunitites. In the meanwhile please explore the book website where you will find a video trailer, sneak previews, an interactive story map and more - www.TheIrmaDiaries.com.
