CU invites community to join common read

July 1, 2019

Bill McKibbenClarion University Center for First-Year Experience, in collaboration with the Mary Seifert Cultural Series, will launch a Common Book Program that culminates in a presentation by the book’s author. The program’s inaugural book will be “Falter” by Bill McKibben.

Thirty years ago, McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about climate change in his book, "The End of Nature." Now, he broadens the warning: The entire human game, he suggests, has begun to play itself out.

Drawing on his experiences in building, the first truly global citizens movement to combat climate change, McKibben issues a sobering call to arms to save not only our planet, but humanity itself.

The book will provide a common reading experience for first-year students at Clarion University, but the entire community is invited and encouraged to read the book and join McKibben when he visits campus Oct. 15.

For information on where to buy the book, visit The book is also available at Clarion University Store.
