Bill McKibben at The Cottage
An excerpt from a thoughtful, hopeful conversation
I recently asked author and climate activist Bill McKibben to join me at The Cottage to talk about his new book, The Flag, the Cross, and the Station Wagon. In a wide-ranging discussion we talked about how the world has changed, dashed hopes, and what it will entail to fight for the future.
Live conversations like this one are hosted by The Cottage for paid subscribers. However, I wanted to share this excerpt from the event with everyone at the Cottage. This discussion gave me joy during this hard week. When it ended, I felt less alone and more hopeful.
Please read Bill’s important book. And I invite you to upgrade to a paid subscription to listen to the entire 70 minutes — and to enjoy conversations like this each month.
To listen to the entire discussion, I invite you to become a supporting member of The Cottage community. Subscriptions are $5 a month, $50 a year (two months free!), or a level of special support at $150.
As part of this special offer, I’ll donate $10 for each new yearly or cultivating subscription through July 3 to Bill’s new endeavor, THIRD ACT.
Once you’ve subscribed, you can view the entire conversation on The Cottage Archive and clicking on “Bill McKibben: What the Hell Happened?” there.
At the archive, you’ll also be able to access other great conversations and special series and posts.
And you’ll be signed up just in time for the special — and “secret” — Summer Wisdom Journey for the paid community! Shhh! Don’t tell! Details coming on July 4!
