Naomi Klein: Arctic Imagination
Become a Friend of the Library for pre-sale access from August 11-13 and 20% off tickets! http://on.nypl.org/fbpresale
The Arctic Imagination project is a brainstorm across the Atlantic Ocean about melting arctic ice and the increasing temperatures, in which artists exchange ideas and visions of the future of the globe. In only 100 years, the Arctic and the North Pole have been transformed from highly dangerous and mysterious peripheral areas into regions that need our protection and sense of responsibility. NYPL has joined forces with major libraries in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, and Nuuk this year for the project, and is proud to present Naomi Klein. Klein’s 2015 book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate argued that massively reducing our greenhouse emissions is our best chance to simultaneously reduce gaping inequalities, re-imagine our broken democracies, and rebuild our gutted local economies. Her most recent book is No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shocking Politics and Winning the World We Need.
Co-presented with the Royal Danish Library and the Consulate General of Denmark in New York, as part of the Arctic Imagination series.
