The 50th Anniversary of Earth Day
with Paul Elie
Writer Paul Elie will join us to discuss the legacy of Earth Day since its inception fifty years ago and the literary history of the environmental movements that soon followed. Hosted by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, Paul will read an excerpt from his upcoming special feature essay on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day followed by a conversation that will consider whether we will live up to the promise of unified action on behalf of the Earth. A frequent contributor to The New Yorker, Paul’s work examines the ways religious ideas are expressed in literature, the arts, music, and culture. This live conversation will also include a moderated Q&A with the audience.
