The Merwin Conservancy and Honolulu Museum of Art are proud to present an intimate evening with Bill McKibben. The Green Room is an environmental and literary salon series that fosters a reverence for language, nature and imagination. The Green Room series was founded on Maui by The Merwin Conservancy and is now held on both Maui and Oahu.
The presentation will be followed by refreshments and a Q&A and book signing with Bill McKibben.
About Bill McKibben: McKibben is an author and environmentalist who in 2014 was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called "the alternative Nobel." His 1989 book The End of Nature is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change, and has appeared in 24 languages—he has since written a dozen more books. He is a founder of 350.org, the first and largest global grassroots climate change movement, which has organized 20,000 rallies around the world, spearheaded the resistance to the Keystone Pipeline, and launched the fast-growing fossil fuel divestment movement.
A former staff writer for The New Yorker, he writes frequently for a wide variety of publications around the world, including the New York Review of Books, National Geographic and Rolling Stones.
