The Great Hall, 1119 Eighth Avenue (enter on Eighth Avenue), Seattle
Doors at 6:30PM.
For more than twenty years, Naomi Klein has been the foremost chronicler of the economic war waged on both people and planet—and an unapologetic champion of a sweeping environmental agenda with justice at its center. Klein will be at Town Hall with insight from On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal, a report from the front lines of contemporary natural disaster that offers prescient advisories and dire warnings of what future awaits us if we refuse to act—as well as hopeful glimpses of a far better future.
Klein investigates our modern climate crisis not only as a profound political challenge but as a spiritual and imaginative one. She delves into topics ranging from the clash between ecological time and our culture of “perpetual now,” to the soaring history of humans changing and evolving rapidly in the face of grave threats, to rising white supremacy and fortressed borders as a form of “climate barbarism.” Join Klein for an expansive, far-ranging exploration that sees the battle for a greener world as indistinguishable from the fight for our lives, and a rousing call to action for a planet on the brink.
Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist and author of the New York Timesand international bestsellers, No is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs The Climate, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, and No Logo.
