Husband and wife journalist and novelist team Sue Halpern and Bill McKibben come to town to celebrate the release of Ms. Halpern’s new novel, Summer Hours at the Robbers Library, which follows the November 2017 release of Mr. McKibben’s first novel, Radio Free Vermont. Mr. McKibben is the author of countless writings about climate change, and the founder of 350.org, an activist group committed to renewable energy resources; Ms. Halpern is the author of several works of fiction and narrative-nonfiction, and her articles have appeared in magazines ranging from Rolling Stone to The New Yorker. They are both on the faculty of Middlebury College where she is a Scholar-in-Residence in the Department of English and American Literatures and he is the Schuman Distinguished Scholar in the Department of Environmental Studies.
