the Anthropocene Era"
as told by Cara Judea Alhadeff, with paintings by Micaela Amateau Amato

the human heart." Bill McKibben

Book Launch
Friday, December 9th, 2016 5:30-7:00pm
@ Buffalo Street Books, The Dewitt Mall, 215 N Cayuga St, Ithaca, NY 14850 / 
The public is invited for an evening of embodied democracy and environmental 
justice at the intersections of the sciences and humanities. Cultural 
extinction of ethnic minorities and global ecological extinction are seen 
through the eyes of a young Arab-Jewish child. His encounters with Rachel 
Carson, Jacques Cousteau, Harriet Tubman, Spinoza, Maimonides, and ibn Sina 
(among many other historical figures) challenge 21st century giants such as 
Nestlé, Merck, Exxon, Monsanto, and Pfizer, as they stalk the planet.
Performers: Kemet Rivkin (Theater performer), Abbe Lyons (Cantor, Interim 
Director of Hillel) and Carolyn Goelzer (Atkinson Center for a Sustainable 
Future Fellow, Department of Performing & Media Arts).
Sponsored by Cornell's Near Eastern Studies Department and Learn@EcoVillage, 
the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, and the Ithaca Bakery.
