Matt Jenson and the Liquid Revolution with Frances Moore Lappé in CONCERT (5/17 + 18)
World-renowned progressive author and social philosopher Frances Moore Lappé (Diet for a Small Planet) meets musician Matt Jenson (Rebel Tumbao, Berklee College of Music faculty) for two nights of insightful and soul awakening responses to the pressing social, political, economic, and environmental issues of our times.

The Liquid Revolution reggae band will perform songs from their new album Dragonfly Taxi, while opening up musical spaces throughout each set for Frances to recite from her latest book, "EcoMind: Changing the Way We Think to Create the World We Want."  

Join Frances, Matt and the Small Planet Institute crew in celebrating the paperback release of Frances' latest book EcoMind and the release of the EcoMind inspired single "Believing is Seeing."
