Free tickets have been taken.
Speak to Me, Marin's premiere series of intelligent, inspiring speaking events for women, presents "The Story of Stuff: Creating a Sustainable Future" with Annie Leonard, author and creator of the video The Story of Stuff on January 11, 2011, from 6:30–9:30 pm.
Annie Leonard has brilliantly combined analysis of the economy, culture, and the environment to transform the way we think about our lives and our relationship to the planet, while offering hope that change is within reach. In 2007 her remarkably simple, yet powerful and engaging 20-minute web video, The Story of Stuff, quickly went viral and became one of the most successful environmental-themed videos of all time, with over 20 million viewers in more than 200 countries. She has been named one of the “Five Most Important Environmental Movement Leaders” by the Washington Examiner, an “Environmental Hero” by TIME Magazine, and has appeared on The Colbert Report among other talk shows.
Annie’s recently released book shot immediately onto the NY Times best-seller list, and now her Story of Stuff Project includes eye-opening videos on bottled water, cosmetics and electronics. Her work is also having a profound impact on American classrooms. Check out her video at www.storyofstuff.org.
