Cynthia Barnett spent her Knight-Wallace Fellowship studying America’s freshwater supply, leading to not one but two books. The first, “Mirage: Florida and the Vanishing Water of the Eastern U.S.,” blends investigative reporting and environmental history to tell the strange tale of vanishing water in one of our wettest states. “Mirage” won the gold medal for best nonfiction in the Florida Book Awards and was named by The St. Petersburg Times as one of the top 10 books every Floridian should read.
