One of those who has put herself on the line in what she writes, and in her decades-long activism work, everything Naomi Klein has written has had substance, tell-tale knowing, and a knack of knowing it will take time, effort, gtit, and humor to get where things need to go. She is all about those things, and more, here tonight for her all-too-timely new book, On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal (Simon & Schuster). This book gives substance and strategy to a concept that is being voiced and visioned by others, articulated as a galvanizing action necessary if we are to surive as a species, much less a country. A growing number of elected officials are signing on; this book should help elucidate key points, make clear the urgency, and help engage others. Naomi Klein’s other books include No Logo, The Shock Doctrine, This Changes Everything, and No Is Not Enough.
