In celebration of Earth Day, while supplies last, we are offering a special gift to donors who generously contribute $75 or more in support of The Merwin Conservancy.
The first 40 donors giving $75 or more will receive* a signed hardcover edition of Bill McKibben’s latest book Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance (2017, Blue Rider Press) – a special gift of thanks from The Merwin Conservancy, in celebration of Earth Day.
The Merwin Conservancy wishes to extend a special thank you to Bill McKibben for joining us in Hawai‘i last week for two sold-out appearances in our Green Room environmental and literary salon series, and for taking the time to sign these 40 books to support the Conservancy’s efforts to continue the Green Room, and to further advance the ideas of W.S. Merwin while preserving his poet’s home and 18 acre palm forest.
Radio Free Vermont is McKibben’s first novel – a witty, biting, and timely fictional fable that can be read as a tribute and an encouragement to the trend of organized civil resistance now building across America. Radio Free Vermont is considered a “delicious pleasure” that is “balm for our troubled times” (Jay Parini, author of The Last Station) and “a story as outrageous as our times” (Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine).
*Note: if your billing address is different than where you’d like the book shipped, please include shipping address in the “Comments” section of our donation form. Cost of shipping is included.
