September 30, 2019,
This Wednesday night, come out and hear from one of the strongest voices of the environmental movement. Social activist, filmmaker, and bestselling author Naomi Klein will be discussing her new book ON FIRE: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal with 33rd Ward Alderman Rossana Rodriguez at the Music Box Theater.
On Fire shows why Naomi Klein was described by the New Yorker as “the most influential figure on the American left” and why leading environmentalist Bill McKibben calls her “the intellectual godmother of the Green New Deal—which just happens to be the most important idea in the world right now.”
Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, columnist, and author of the New York Times and international bestsellers The Shock Doctrine, No Logo, This Changes Everything, and No Is Not Enough. A Senior Correspondent for The Intercept, reporter for Rolling Stone, and contributor for both The Nation and The Guardian, Klein is the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture, and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University. She is co-founder of the climate justice organization The Leap.
WHEN: Wednesday, October 2nd, 7pm – 9pm
WHERE: Music Box Theater, 3733 N. Southport Ave – Chicago, IL 60613
