More About Leading Environmentalist Bill McKibben to Speak in New Canaan

World-famous author, environmentalist, and activist, Bill McKibben, will speak about his recently published book, “Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?” at Saxe Middle School on November 11, at 7:30 pm. McKibben is one of the earliest and most well-respected voices on climate change. His groundbreaking 1989 book, “The End of Nature,” was the first to alert a general audience about global warming.

“Falter,” tells the story of how the converging trends of climate change and new technologies threaten human experience as we know it. Drawing on his experience as founder of 350.org, the first truly global citizen’s movement to combat climate change, McKibben outlines possible ways out of the trap before it’s too late. His powerful and sobering call to arms to save our planet-- and humanity-- is sure to galvanize the audience.

Four New Canaan organizations -- Elm Street Books, New Canaan Garden Club, New Canaan Land Trust, and New Canaan Library -- have partnered to bring the well-known environmentalist to New Canaan. The event will take place on Monday, November 11, at Saxe Middle School Auditorium, starting at 7:30 pm (Doors open at 7:15 pm). Tickets include a copy of “Falter.” Additional signed copies of his book will be available for purchase.
