Eden Mills Writers' Festival Welcomes Naomi Klien to Guelph on September 12, 2015

In This Changes Everything, Naomi Klein, author of the global #1 bestsellers The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, tackles the most profound threat humanity has ever facesd; the war our economic model is waging against life on earth. Climate change, Klein argues, is a civilizational wake-up call, a powerful message delivered in the language of fires, floods, storms, and droughts. Confronting it is no longer about changing the light bulbs. It’s about changing the world.  We have been told that humanity is too greedy and selfish to rise to this challenge. In fact, all around the world, the fight for the next economy and against reckless extraction is already succeeding in ways both surprising and inspiring.

Klein’s presentation will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Barry Smit, Professor of Geography, University of Guelph. A book signing will follow the event.
