Revolution Against Climate Catastrophe
Book Tour with author Javier Sethness-Castro
~~ appearing in person
Javier Sethness-Castro presents grim news from contemporary climatologists in his new book, Imperiled Life, while providing a reconstructive vision inspired by anarchist intellectual traditions and promoting critical thought as a means of changing our historical trajectory. This book is being co-published with the Institute for Anarchist Studies. Javier theorizes an exit from the potentially terminal consequences of capital-induced climate change. His book is a collection of reflections on the phenomenon of catastrophe — climatological, political, social — as well as on the possibilities of overcoming disaster. We can draw on this book for inspiration in these darkest of times.
Our Programs at Humanist Hall are accompanied by pot luck refreshments. Feel free to bring scrumptious food, organic and local, to enjoy with others. Our doors open at 6:30 pm for our social hour and pot luck refreshments; Javier’s talk will begin at 7:30 pm.
