Environmentalist and Author Bill McKibben to Speak at Mount Holyoke February 11

Environmentalist Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and other works, will speak on "The Environment as Moral Challenge" Monday, February 11, at 7 pm in the art building's Gamble Auditorium. The senior class plans to make an important commencement announcement at this event.

The End of Nature, published in 1989, introduced millions of readers to the problems caused by global warming. It has been translated into ten languages and was reissued in a tenth-anniversary edition. He is also the author of Maybe One: A Personal and Environmental Argument for Single-Child Families, The Age of Missing Information, The Hundred Dollar Holiday: The Case for a Joyful Christmas, and several other books, and is a former staff writer for the New Yorker.

McKibben is a visiting scholar in environmental studies at Middlebury College, where he is writing a book on the implications of biotechnology. Before arriving at Middlebury, he had been a fellow at the Harvard University Center for the Study of Values in Public Life. He is the recipient of Guggenheim and Lyndhurst fellowships and the 2000 winner of the Lannan Prize in Nonfiction Writing.

McKibben's talk is sponsored by the Senior Class Board, the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, the Office of the Dean of the College, the Office of the President, the Weissman Center for Leadership, and the Center for Environmental Literacy.
