Accomplished environmentalist author, journalist and founder of 350.org Bill McKibben found himself behind bars in the summer of 2011 after leading a large civil disobedience at the White House in protest of the Keystone XL pipeline. Now he’s ready to talk about what led him there in his new book Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist, which intertwines his work with a Vermont beekeeper with his story of leading a growing social movement. The book also ties together the two necessary faces of the global climate fight: the fight against the fossil-fuel industry as a whole and the development of small-scale local answers. With empathy and passion, McKibben draws on why these two aspects are mutually reinforcing and must come hand-in-hand for the success of a movement that could lead to saving the planet. McKibben speaks about Oil and Honey on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at Dominican University. 50 Acacia Ave, San Rafael. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.
