Eco Thrillers to Read and Watch

It’s Science Literacy Week, a week dedicated to celebrating all things science. We always have programs for our youngest readers but this year we wanted to put together some book lists for our older readers.

Today we’re featuring books and movies that are considered climate or eco thrillers. These titles have, as you would expect, a thriller element but the plot focuses on something relating to the environment. Maybe there’s a fight against a megacorporation that’s destroying the land or maybe it’s set a number of years in the future when the land is in serious trouble.
