Second Friday at the Library
The Rappahannock Association for the Arts and the Community (RAAC) Second Friday at the Library Series is offered monthly from September through May when speakers are available. The talks are held at the Library on the second Friday of the month at 8PM and feature local authors and speakers on topics of interest to the community.
Friday, November 14- Lester Brown
Lester Brown is an internationally acclaimed environmentalist, hailed by the Washington Post as "one of the world's most influential thinkers."
He thinks most often about global issues – population, energy, climate. Lately he has focused much of his attention on the politics of food and hunger. "There will be 219,000 people at the dinner table tonight who were not there last night," Brown notes, and his library talk will examine how struggles over land and water and crops will shape the twenty-first century. How will farmers keep pace?
Brown, born and raised on a farm, started his career as a tomato farmer in New Jersey. In the years since he has written dozens of books and won a MacArthur Fellowship "genius" award, among various honors. Brown is the founder of the Worldwatch Institute, which focuses on how a "sustainable" economy could take shape.
As a special bonus, Brown will be introduced by Bill Dietel, his friend for many years. The talk will be free. All are welcome.
