The Hippies Have a Point

Environmentalist and founder Bill McKibben has plenty to say on the global climate change, and what’s more, he’s been published. So respected is McKibben that the folks at Books and Books (265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables) are having him put on a lecture at 8 p.m. Wednesday that’s sure to attract hardcore granola munchers and organic-pomegranate-martini-sipping socialites alike. The free lecture addresses just how screwed McKibben’s research states our planet is and will be followed by a Q&A session in case you’re still not convinced. Interested parties can buy a copy of his new book, Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet, and get it signed by the eco-friendly man himself afterward. Visit or, or call 305-442-4408.
