Perils of high-tech waste surround us, author says
By Kristi Heim
Environmental writer Elizabeth Grossman explores the toxic underside of our digital age in her new book "High Tech Trash: Digital Devices, Hidden Toxics and Human Health." Based in Portland, Grossman became interested in the topic in 2000 after researching pollution in the Willamette River tied to tech and related industries.
Grossman is reading at 7 p.m. today at the University Bookstore in the U District and at 8 p.m. Wednesday at Elliott Bay Book Co.
Here's a transcript of a conversation with her last week.
