Bill McKibben - Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance

Upcoming Event
Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 6:00 pm

Vermont’s state motto is “Freedom and Unity,” and the angry citizens in McKibben’s first novel are banding together to ensure that it stays that way. Led by Vern Barclay, a feisty seventy-two-year-old pirate-radio broadcaster, and his techie sidekick, the revolutionaries want Vermont to secede from the Union. They plan to set up a free local economy, honor Ethan Allan Day, and ban corporate-brand beer in favor of Vermont brews. McKibben, whose 1989 book The End of Nature is often credited with launching the climate change movement, is the founder of 350.org, the first global grassroots climate change organization, and he draws on his life-long activism for this sharp and witty dramatization of what determination and vision can do.
