Talk at Vancouver Writers Festival, October 25, 2020

Vancouver Writers Festival, Sunday, October 25th, 11 AM PST: Thrilled and honoured to be part of The Interviews with Marsha Lederman, featuring Seth Klein, Shaena Lambert and Amin Maalouf. This is sure to be a fascinating discussion. Amin Maalouf is the renowned scholar and author of The Crusades through Arab Eyes, and Samarkand. Policy expert and social thinker Seth Klein has just come out with a new book – The Good War: Mobilizing Canada for the Climate Emergency – on how our society can and must flex World War 2-type muscle to fight climate change. I will dig into the story of ecological heroine Petra Kelly, and what we can learn from her incandescent – and complicated – example. Three consecutive solo interviews with Marsha Lederman followed by audience questions and answers. For more information, contact The Vancouver Writers Festival.
