An evening with Al Gore, author of 'Our Choice'
Former Vice President Gore will be in Seattle to discuss his latest book, 'Our Choice', a call to action that picks up where 'An Inconvenient Truth' left off, providing a blueprint for solving the global climate crisis. A co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his environmental work, Mr. Gore illuminates the solutions that really work, including some bold initiatives that were deemed impossible only a short time ago but are now gaining support around the world. Over the past few years, Mr. Gore has led more than 30 'Solution Summits' with top scientists, engineers and policy experts to examine every solution to the climate crisis in depth and detail. 'Our Choice' draws on conclusions developed through those summits as well as on extensive independent research, outlining how the bold choices necessary to save the earths climate should also be the foundations of policies worldwide to create new jobs and stimulate sustainable economic progress.
As they did with 'An Inconvenient Truth', former Vice President Gore and Mrs. Tipper Gore will donate 100% of the proceeds of the book to the Alliance for Climate Protection, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group dedicated to spreading awareness about the climate crisis and how to solve it. 'Our Choice' will feature 100% recycled paper, locally produced and sourced editions, low VOC inks, and will be carbon neutral.
Mr. Gore will be speaking at Town Hall Seattle at 7 pm on Tuesday, November 17th.
A copy of 'Our Choice' is included in the per person ticket price of $25.
Ticket holders names will be on a checklist at Town Hall Seattle (no physical tickets will be issued). At check in, attendees will receive a copy of the featured book, which Mr. Gore will sign following his talk and the audience question & answer period.
He will sign copies of the new book, but due to time constraints, he will not provide personalized messages; photos can be taken during the book signing only, and posed photos with Mr. Gore will not be permitted. Doors will open at 6:15pm.
