Tim Stevenson will discuss his book "Resilience and Resistance: Building Sustainable Communities for a Post Oil Age," from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Village Bookstore, Bellows Falls on Nov. 13. His book is a collection of original, as well as previously-published essays that center around the author's perspective on what communities need to do in order to both survive the climate crisis, as well as thrive in a post-petroleum world.
Stevenson also believes that we have to resist big oil and its continuing efforts to drill for fossil fuels. From campaigns that encourage individuals and institutions to divest from petroleum companies to direct action and civil disobedience in the face of efforts to expand fossil fuel infrastructure, he believes that we have to build a large movement to create the political will to resist. There will also be book readings, on Nov. 15 at 2 p.m, Unitarian Church, Rte.103, Chester, and Nov. 22 at 2 p.m, at Toadstool, Keene, N.H.
