Bill McKibben to Speak at Vermont Campus

Posted April 24, 2013

Bill McKibben, environmental activist, author, founder of 350.org, and Schumann Distinguished Scholar in the Environmental Studies Department at Middlebury College, will speak at Bread Loaf's Vermont campus this summer.

His first book, The End of Nature, written in 1989, is considered the first book for a general audience on climate change, and his newest book, Eaarth, argues that hope lies in fundamental changes in our behaviors. McKibben contributes regularly to magazines such as The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, Harper's, Orion Magazine, Mother Jones, The New York Review of Books, Granta, Rolling Stone, and Outside. He has been awarded Guggenheim and Lyndhurst Fellowships, and won the Lannan Prize for nonfiction writing in 2000.
