Ecoreading on sale for Earth Day!

Banerjee_ArcticVoices_pbk_1024x1024

It’s Earth Day!  Earth Day XLVI, to be exact, and observers all over are largely focusing on the US and China, two of the world’s biggest contributors to climate change, which have agreed to mark the day by formally signing the Paris Agreement, a binding resolution on curbing ecological destruction that has been joined by 120 countries.

At Seven Stories, we’re marking the occasion by offering 50% off all our titles related to climate change and ecological activism, including Subhankar Banerjee‘s Arctic Voices, a stunning collection of first-hand accounts from the front lines of the war to protect our frozen north; Noam Chomsky and Laray Polk‘s Nuclear War and Environmental Catastrophe, a book of stark warning aboutthe twin dangers of too much and too little action; Tom Athanasiou and Paul Baer‘s Dead Heat, a polemic that connects hand-wringing over climate to bigger issues of justice along lines of ferocious clarity; and, of course, our suite of books by the uncompromising Derrick Jensen, the poet-philosopher of the ecological movement whose books, many and pathbreaking, include DreamsWhat We Leave Behind, and many more, including, with comic artist Stephanie McMillan, the surprisingly merry As the World Burns: Fifty Simple Things You Can Do to Stay in Denial.

An interview with Barbara Williams

We sent some interview questions to Barbara Williams, whose new memoir of life in the logging communities of Western Canada, The Hope in Leaving, we recently published to early acclaim. Besides an author, Williams is a successful actress and accomplished musician. Spend a minute here — this is a terrific read.

Why did you decide to write The Hope in Leaving now, so many years after the events it describes took place?

It took many years and much distance to achieve a perspective on those events, to be able to distill them into art. I’ve always been journaling but acting was my primary creative focus. After my son was born I wanted to be present for his childhood. Other actresses can manage raising kids and working on location but I opted to stay close to home and write. My book was released on the eve of my son’s 16th birthday.
