Stager to speak at Literacy Volunteers fundraiser

Well-known ecologist and local professor, Dr. Curt Stager will present his thought-provoking book, “Deep Future,”at the Literacy Volunteers’ Annual August Author Address on Sunday, Aug. 24 at 1:00 p.m at Camp Dudley’s Witherbee Hall.

Environmentalists like Bill McKibben, Alan Weismann, and Elizabeth Kolbert praise Stager for his ability to untangle the history of climate change and then clearly define its unavoidable impact for generations to come. It will surely be a lecture that people of all ages can learn from. This cost is $15 per person or two for $25. You may purchase tickets at the door or order them online at litvol.com. For more information, call 546-3008. Proceeds will benefit Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties.

“The August Author Address has been a long-time fundraising event for Literacy Volunteers of Essex and Franklin Counties,” Director Maria Burke said. “Local authors like Russell Banks, Thurston Clarke, Stephen Kellogg and Kristen Kimball have all presented to help raised much needed funds for our adult literacy programs. We’re very pleased to have local author, Curt Stager present his book, Deep Future, which has caught the attention of environmentalist like Bill McKibben.”
