EVENT OVERVIEW: New York Times Bestselling Author Mary Pipher, Ph.D., will appear In Conversation about her New Book The Green Boat: Reviving Ourselves in Our Capsized Culture.
ABOUT MARY PIPHER: Mary Pipher, Ph.D., is a Psychologist and the Author of nine Books, including the New York Times Bestsellers Reviving Ophelia, The Shelter of Each Other and Another Country, as well as Seeking Peace and Writing to Change the World. She lives in Nebraska.
ABOUT THE GREEN BOAT: In Reviving Ophelia, Mary Pipher offered a paradigm-shattering look at the lives of adolescent women. Now Pipher is back with another ground-breaking examination of everyday life, this time exploring how to conquer our fears about the major environmental issues that confound us and transform them into a positive force in our lives. Pipher emphasizes the importance of taking small, positive steps to preserve what’s important, drawing from her own experiences as part of a group fighting energy company TransCanada’s installation of the Keystone XL oil pipeline across the Midwest, which will sit atop the Ogallala Aquifer, the source of 40% of the United States’ fresh water. The challenges she confronts reveal surprising answers to the critical questions we face: How do we mobilize ourselves and our communities to work together to solve global problems? How do we stay happy amid very difficult situations? And what is the true meaning of hope? Both profound and practical, The Green Boat explains how we can attend to the world around us with calmness, balance, and great love.
