Strong Voices Impacting Change (NYC)

News Story

Pace and the Women’s National Book Association are teaming up for green on November 11 as they host a discussion on women writing about the environment.

Need midweek plans? Spend your Wednesday evening with the New York City chapter of the Women’s National Book Association (WNBA) for “Women Writing About the Environment: Strong Voices Impacting Change”—a panel discussion where notable women writers will discuss the ways they use their writing and art to examine some of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.

In addition to Pace’s own Art Department Chair Eve Andrée Laramée and Environmental Studies and Science Chair E. Melanie Dupuis, PhD, the panel will feature notable names such as playwright and author Irene O’Garden, author Amy King, and renowned artist Marina Zurkow. Through an engaging discussion, the WNBA hopes to stimulate and energize women artists at Pace to use their creative canvases in ways that invoke positive change. The panel will be moderated by Andrew Revkin, New York Times "Dot Earth" blogger and senior fellow for the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies.

The panel will be held on Wednesday, November 11, at 6:00 p.m. in the Bianco Room-Level B at One Pace Plaza. For more information and to register for this free event, click here.
