Naomi Klein is coming to Olympia Thursday, May 18 from 7:30 to 10 p.m. The award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist and book author will speak at The Evergreen State College’s College Recreation Center.
Klein is the author of the international bestsellers This Changes Everything (2014), The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism (2007), and No Logo (2000). A new book, No is Not Enough, will be published in June.
According to Klein’s website, after This Changes Everything was published her focus has been to put its ideas into action. She is one of the organizers and authors of Canada’s Leap Manifesto, a blueprint for a rapid and justice-based transition off fossil fuels. The Leap has been endorsed by more than 200 organizations and has inspired similar climate justice initiatives around the world.
General admission tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Tickets can be purchased through ticketswest.com, the Greener Bookstore, and Rainy Day Records. This event is sponsored by S&A Productions. For details, check out Evergreen’s website or call 360/867-6220.
