POSTPONED: Frances Moore Lappé, author of the groundbreaking Diet for a Small Planet: “Climate Crisis In Focus: Finding Hope Through Democratic Action”
April 16, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
UPDATE: this event is postponed to possibly October.
In America today, many of us can feel overwhelmed by the simultaneous political, economic, and climate crises upon us. Frances Moore Lappé discusses these three interacting roots of our problems: a brutal form of capitalism, big money’s grip on our democracy, and climate catastrophe. She shows us how realizing their unity can be empowering, not overwhelming. They open historic opportunity. Addressing one crisis, we are working to solve all three. Through inspiring stories and startling facts, Frances helps us realize our own power to generate a new story as we tackle these root causes with exhilarating, courageous action—together.
This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Frances’ talk will be followed by a book signing in the 2nd floor lobby. New books will be for sale but please feel free to bring your well-worn Small Planet copies for Frances to sign too! Top off your evening at the College by dining in Pearson’s Café.
