Bill McKibben—Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance

The Free Library of Philadelphia—Parkway Central Branch, 1901 Vine St.

Bill McKibben gave one of the earliest cautions about global warming with his 1989 book “The End of Nature.” His myriad other bestselling books about the environment include “Deep Economy,” “Eaarth” and “Oil and Honey.” Recipient of the 2013 Gandhi Peace Award, McKibben is the Schumann distinguished scholar at Middlebury College and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In his debut novel, “the world’s best green journalist” (Time) draws upon the current state of politics to imagine a band of Vermont patriots who decide to secede from the United States.
