I am super-excited and honored to announce that Earth Day and the Environmental Movement has been long-listed for the Green Earth Book Awards. It’s a little heady to have a book included in a list that includes many nonfiction writers I respect and admire. Check out the full list here.
I’m pleased to announce the debut of Earth Day and the Environmental Movement: Standing Up for Earth, available today from Twenty First Century Books. The book has received several really lovely reviews, and I’m thrilled to see it finally out in the world. I’ll be adding a tab to the top of this page filled with resources to accompany the book. I would love to keep adding to this list, so if you see a tool or resource I’ve missed, please contact me.
Many thanks go to the entire team at Twenty First Century Books for their support and for creating a beautiful book out of the pile of words I sent them.
I am available to visit your school or organization to speak about Earth Day and things we can all do to help the environment. I’ll be adding more specifics in the coming weeks.
Here are some of the things reviewers are saying about Earth Day and the Environmental Movement.
“The book, despite its slim size, successfully covers people who have made an impact or are influencing the conversation. But even more significant are the two additions to every chapter: an example of youth activism and an example of the intersectionality of the environment, race, and justice. VERDICT The book, used across science classes or in social justice circles, has a place in public and school libraries—not just as a part of an Earth Day display but as a relevant resource about a dire issue facing the global population.”

P.S. You will notice the higher-than-average price tag. This is an educational title only available in library binding. If you’d like to support education market authors like me, but can’t afford the price of ed. market titles, you can request that your local library purchase the book. And thank you for your support. 🙂
