Bill McKibben is a founder of the environmental organization 350.org and was among the first to have warned of the dangers of global warming. He is the author of fifteen books, including the bestsellers "The End of Nature," "Eaarth," and "Deep Economy." He is the Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College and the winner of the Gandhi Prize, the Thomas Merton Prize, and the Right Livelihood Prize.
Thirty years ago he offered one of the earliest warnings about climate change; now in "Falter," he provides a powerful, sobering call to arms to save not only our planet but all humanity.
McKibben and Joe Donahue will talk about "Falter" in an Off the Shelf edition of The Book Show at Northshire Bookstore in Manchester Center, VT on Friday, April 19 at 6 p.m.
