Gibson's Bookstore, the Capitol Center for the Arts, and New Hampshire Public Radio are pleased to present Bill McKibben (The End of Nature, Eaarth, Oil and Honey)! McKibben will appear in Concord on Tuesday, December 5, at 7 p.m. at the Capitol Center for the Arts. 

He will be joined on stage and in conversation by Virginia Prescott, host of NHPR's Word of Mouth and the 10-Minute Writer's Workshop podcast, as they discuss his debut novel, Radio Free Vermont, in which a band of Vermont patriots decide that their state might be better off as its own republic.

Bill McKibben is an author and environmentalist. His 1989 book The End of Nature is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change, and has appeared in 24 languages; he's gone on to write a dozen more books, including Eaarth and Oil and Honey. He is a founder of 350.org, the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement, which launched the fast-growing fossil fuel divestment movement. He lives in Vermont.

Virginia Prescott is the Gracie Award-winning host of Word of Mouth, and the Civics 101 and 10-Minute Writer's Workshop podcasts from New Hampshire Public Radio. Before returning to her home state of New Hampshire, Virginia was a producer and editor for NPR’s On Point and Here & Now programs, and a director at WNYC in New York. Throughout her career, she's trained journalists and helped develop independent community radio in post-conflict zones from the Balkans to West Africa. She was a member of the Peabody Award-Winning team at Jazz from Lincoln Center, an Edward R. Murrow Award-winner at WNYC, and a Loeb Fellow at Harvard University. She loves working in radio but regrets that so many good outfits go unnoticed.
