Author and environmentalist Bill McKibben will read from, discuss and sign his new book, Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance. A book that's also the beginning of a movement, Bill McKibben's debut novel follows a band of Vermont patriots who decide that their state might be better off as its own republic.
In Radio Free Vermont, McKibben's fictional response to the burgeoning resistance movement, he imagines an eccentric group of activists who carry out their own version of guerilla warfare, which includes dismissing local middle school children early in honor of 'Ethan Allen Day' and hijacking a Coors Light truck and replacing the stock with local brew. It's witty, biting satire, and terrifically timely.
Bill McKibben is the author of more than a dozen books, including The End of Nature, Oil and Honey, Wandering Home, and Deep Economy. He has written extensively on the impact of global warming in numerous magazines, including The New Yorker and National Geographic. He is a founder of the environmental organization 350.org. He is a scholar in residence at Middlebury College and lives in Ripton with his wife, the writer Sue Halpern.
