An Evening with Tricia Shapiro

This Monday, October 25 at 7 p.m. in 26 Hosler Building, Eco-Action at Penn State and the Campus Sustainability Office will be hosting author Tricia Shapiro, to speak about her personal and behind-the-scenes experiences with the social and environmental destruction that is Mountaintop Removal (MTR) mining.

Since 2004, Shapiro has served as an embedded reporter, following the grassroots efforts in Appalachia to save the mountains, streams, and communities in West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee that have been victimized by MTR. She and other activists have stood up to big coal companies like Massey Energy and continue to raise awareness of this barbarous process in their effort to end Mountaintop Removal.

Shapiro is the author of some 20 books, including her newest, entitled MOUNTAIN JUSTICE: Homegrown Resistance to Mountaintop Removal, for the Future of Us All.  At the event, she will be speaking of her experiences in combating MTR followed by a Q&A session. She will also be selling and signing copies of her book after the event.  In conjunction with her speech, there will be a viewing of Mountaintop Removal, a riveting documentary by Michael O’Connell that will further expose the atrocities of MTR.  So come on out to 26 Hosler on Monday at 7 for an in-depth look at Mountaintop Removal.
