About this Event

This sold-out event will be live-streamed from facebook.com/jacobinmag, beginning at 7:30pm.

Join internationally-renowned author and activist Arundhati Roy for a rare US appearance, in conversation with journalist and activist Naomi Klein, in which she will discuss life on earth at the brink of environmental collapse.

Humanity is at a cross-roads, facing two possible futures. One sees ecological collapse and dispossession of billions people and wildlife, provoked by unchecked corporate greed. A more hopeful future has its roots in the millions joining a movement to save our planet.

After winning a global following for The God of Small Things, Roy has spent over two decades exposing crises of ecology, human rights, and democracy — and chronicling the noble resistance of ordinary people.

Arundhati Roy studied architecture in New Delhi, where she now lives. She is the author of the novels The God of Small Things, for which she received the 1997 Booker Prize, and The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. A collection of her essays from the past twenty years, My Seditious Heart, was recently published by Haymarket Books.

Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, columnist, and author of the New York Times and international bestsellers The Shock Doctrine, No Logo, This Changes Everything, and No Is Not Enough. Senior Correspondent for The Intercept and Puffin Writing Fellow at the Type Media Center, Klein is the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture, and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University. Her most recent book is ON FIRE: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal.
