Al Roker on Superstorms, Climate Change, and The Gulf Hurricane of 1900

You may know him best as the friendly face telling you what’s happening in your neck of the woods every morning on NBC, but Al Roker is more than just a beloved weatherman. Roker is, in fact, a fairly prolific author, with an oeuvre spanning genres from memoir to murder mysteries. He’s back now with The Storm of the Century, a nonfiction book about the Great Gulf Hurricane of 1900, which devastated Galveston, Texas and claimed thousands of lives. Here, Roker chats with Bookish’s Elizabeth Rowe about The Storm of the Century as well as the most pressing weather-related issue facing his viewers today.

Elizabeth was an American Studies major at Georgetown University, and is currently getting her MFA in nonfiction writing at Columbia University. She spends entirely too much time and money at the Strand, where she once saw Daniel Radcliffe. Her current obsession is the My Struggle series by Karl Ove Knausgaard, and she thoroughly embarrassed herself when she met him shortly after the release of volume four (and she has the photos to prove it).
