Climate Event — April 15th

By Emily Steiver on April 7, 2010

I thought this CCAN event might be of interest to many of you. I am looking forward to the event, especially the reception before hand.

The Chesapeake Climate Action Network is honored to host international climate leader Bill McKibben as he begins a national tour for his newest book, Eaarth: Making A Life On A Tough New Planet.

Reviews of Eaarth, including Alan Weisman’s on the right, hint at what we can expect to hear from Bill on the evening of April 15th.

You won’t want to miss this event! Join us at Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington, DC on April 15th at 7:30 PM:

In addition to Bill McKibben, you’ll also have the chance to hear from Jeff Biggers, a leader in the fight to end mountaintop removal coal mining, and CCAN director and author Mike Tidwell.

Just $10 for students. $15 for everyone else.

You will have the opportunity to purchase copies of Bill McKibben’s Eaarth, Jeff Biggers’ new book Reckoning at Eagle Creek: The Secret Legacy of Coal in the Heartland and Mike Tidwell’s Bayou Farewell: The Rich Life and Tragic Death of Lousiana’s Cajun Coast. Plus, the authors will stick around after to program to sign their books.

I’m also pleased to announce that Lissy Rosemont of the Junior League Band will perform. Lissy has been referred to as one of the “most promising up and coming vocalists on the Americana scene.” Check out one of her songs.
