Presented by SEATTLE ARTS & LECTURES. Nearly a decade after winning global attention with his photographs and book, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, former Seattle-area resident Subhankar Banerjee continues to give needed focus to the Arctic and the many forces allied against its well-being. He visits this evening with a timely, urgent, eloquent new anthology, Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point (Seven Stories Press). Over thirty essays, many by Native writers and activists, comprise this vital work. Among those contributing: Sarah James, Nick Jans, Velma Wallis, Peter Matthiessen, Nancy Lord, Rosemary Ahtuangaruck, George Schaller, and more. "The earth and her beings have been speaking. But we failed to listen. Arctic Voices compels us to listen. We will stay deaf at our peril." – Vandana Shiva. Tickets ($15/$30) and more information are available via www.lectures.org, or (206) 621-2230. Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca).
