We may be tired, we may be discouraged, but the assaults on a just and sustainable planet keep coming, like birdshot to the face. In this evening conversation with Dr. Moore, we will collect our thoughts, confront our dismay, obliterate our obstacles, gather our courage, summon our communities, and reclaim our laughter and joy for the work ahead.
Kathleen Dean Moore is a writer, moral philosopher, and environmental thought-leader, devoted to an unrelenting defense of the future against those who would pillage and wreck the planet. As a professor and writer, she is best known for her award-winning books of essays that celebrate and explore the meaning of the wet, wild world of rivers, islands, and tidal shores. But her growing alarm at the devastation of the natural world led her to focus her writing, speaking and activism on the moral urgency of action against climate change and habitat destruction. Her new book is the funny and ferocious Piano Tide, a novel.
