[Jeff Biggers’] voice is a swirl of history and memory, of fact and analysis, of hillbilly wisdom and journalistic outrage. Reckoning at Eagle Creek is bigger and brawnier than a memoir or cultural chronicle-it’s a passionate howl from the dark heart of American coal country.”

— Jeff Goodell,
author of
Big Coa

Are you sick of coal and mountaintop removal? Want to be inspired, pumped up, and totally recharged in the fight against global warming?

Then come to DC April 15th for great music and unforgettable storytelling.

Who will you hear at CCAN’s 4th annual “Artists for the Climate” event? How about Jeff Biggers, author of The United States of Appalachia and, most recently, Reckoning at Eagle Creek: The Secret Legacy of Coal in the Heartland . Biggers’ award-winning stories have appeared on National Public Radio, the Washington Post, The Nation and many, many more.

In addition to Biggers, the evening will feature international climate leader Bill McKibben, whose latest book, Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet, is sure to terrify and inspire you. CCAN director and author Mike Tidwell will discuss Bayou Farewell: The Rich Life and Tragic Death of Louisiana’s Cajun Coast , the best-selling book in which he predicted the Katrina hurricane disaster. Music will be provided by Lissy Rosemont of the Junior League Band. Rosemont and her group have been compared to “Alison Krauss and the Band” by the Washington Post.

It will be a special, unforgettable evening. Make your reservation now!
