The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
68. Naomi Klein in Conversation with Kathryn Grestinger
NAOMI KLEIN, KATHRYN GRESTINGER
The internationally bestselling author and activist speaks to the most pressing issue of our time: how climate action is essential for both our environment and a just society.
The #1 international and New York Times bestselling author Naomi Klein speaks to the most pressing issue of our time: how bold climate action is essential—not only for environmental survival but also for a just and thriving society. Her latest book, On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal, gathers more than a decade of her impassioned writing, pairing it with new material on the staggeringly high stakes of our immediate political and economic choices. This important, elegant discussion is bound to provoke and inspire. Don’t miss a chance to hear from one of the essential voices of our time.
Presented in collaboration with the UBC School of Public Policy & Global Affairs.
