Here’s a notice for a Multimedia Extravaganza (Powerpoint slideshow) I’ll be presenting in September:
Time: Wednesday, September 17, 2008 8:00 p.m.
Location: Books & Books
265 Aragon Avenue
Artist and activist Stephanie McMillan delivers a bold and hilarious satire of modern environmental policy in As the World Burns (Seven Stories Press, $14.95), a fully illustrated graphic novel. The U.S. government gives robot machines from space permission to eat the earth in exchange for bricks of gold. A one-eyed bunny rescues his friends from a corporate animal testing laboratory. And two little girls figure out the secret to saving the world from both of its enemies (and it isn’t by using energy-efficient light bulbs or biodiesel fuel). As the World Burns will inspire you to do whatever it takes to stop ecocide before it’s too late.
