[Sjsall] upcoming talk

Dear Friends of SJS,

Please join us this coming week for a conversation with Dahr Jamail, celebrated author of:

The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption

Wednesday, June 5, 7 pm

University of Victoria

David Turpin Bldg A110

Dahr Jamail, based in Port Townsend, Washington, is an independent, award-winning journalist and author of four books as well as more than 100 articles on what he prefers to call “climate disruption.” He was one of a few unembedded journalists in Iraq during the 2003 invasion. His stories have been published in The Guardian, The Nation, Huffington Post, and The Independent and elsewhere, and he is a full-time writer for Truthout.

“My book and my talks provide a full and comprehensive overview of how far along we are on this runaway climate disruption path,” said Jamail. “Then... I take a deep dive into answering the question: ‘How, then, shall we live?’”

Jamail’s book tour will also include: Salt Spring Island, Sooke and Duncan. The tour is sponsored by UVic Social Justice Studies, KAIROS Victoria, Council of Canadians Victoria, Sierra Club BC, Transition Sooke, and One Cowichan.
