LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.

Today's subject is Thomas Kostigen.

Today is World Water Day an initiative created by the United Nations in 1992 to focus attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. In honor of this day we turn to New York Times best-selling author and Los Angeles native Thomas Kostigen. In his new book, THE GREEN BLUE BOOK: The Simple Water-Savings Guide to Everything in Your Life explains how the breakthrough concept of "Virtual Water" and redirecting our daily actions can shore up the world’s water supply.

Kostigen, whose previous books include You Are Here and The Green Book took some time to exchange emails with LAist about World Water Day, the concept of Virtual Water, water waste found in LA that pisses him off and water found in your underwear.
