The Merwin Conservancy presents an intimate evening with Bill McKibben as part of their Green Room series, an environmental and literary salon that fosters a reverence for language, nature, and imagination. Bill McKibben is an author and environmentalist who was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize in 2014, sometimes called the 'alternative Nobel.' His 1989 book, The End of Nature, is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change, and has appeared in 24 languages; he's gone on to write a dozen more books. He is founder of 350.org, the first and largest global grassroots climate change movement, which has organized 20,000 rallies around the world in every country, save North Korea, spearheaded the resistance to the Keystone Pipeline, and launched the fast-growing fossil fuel divestment movement. McKibben was the recipient of the 2013 Gandhi Prize and the Thomas Merton Prize, and holds honorary degrees from 18 colleges and universities. Foreign Policy named him to their inaugural list of the world's 100 most important global thinkers, and The Boston Globe said he was "probably America's most important environmentalist." A former staff writer for The New Yorker, McKibben writes frequently for a wide variety of publications around the world, including the New York Review of Books, National Geographic, and Rolling Stone.

The presentation will be followed by an intimate Q&A with the audience and book signing at a courtyard reception with dessert, champagne, book fair, and live musical entertainment.

This event is generously presented by FIM Group.
All ticket sales benefit the nonprofit Merwin Conservancy.
