Strathmore Speaker Series – Tony Wood on “The World’s Most Fascinating Flake”


This Strathmore Speakers Series session features Anthony R. “Tony” Wood, a reporter and editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer and author of the 2021 book, “Snow: A History of the World’s Most Fascinating Flake.” In his presentation, Wood provides an entertaining look at snow in all its delightful and fearsome manifestations. His talk delves into science, history, economics, and popular culture to examine snow’s enduring hold on the imagination. He discusses the making and removing of snow, the psychology of winter, and the history of snow in literature, art, and popular culture. Finally, we consider the impact of global warming on snowfall and the potential for causing a water crisis in the West and major losses in the winter recreation industry.
