Readings and Talks by Ed Fallon

Marchers Steve, Ed, Tony, and Shira enjoy the unexpected hospitality of Trish and Leonardo Booth at the Booth’s home in Truchas, New Mexico.

Ed Fallon shares the incredible story of the 2014 Great March for Climate Action as chronicled in his memoir, Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim. Ed also discusses the growing urgency of the climate crisis, Bold Iowa’s “Climate Bird Dog” campaign to urge presidential candidates to prioritize the climate crisis, and strategies for local climate resilience. Books will be available for purchase and signed by the author. All proceeds support climate action work.
