Cecile Pineda - APOLOGY TO A WHALE
Cecile Pineda will visit the Mime Troupe to talk about what prompted her to write her recently published Apology to a Whale: Words to Mend a World and how her research led her to make surprising discoveries about what there is about our minds that is killing our planet, and how it relates to the militarism, hierarchy and patriarchy which govern our society. Q & A will follow, prompting a lively discussion; books will be available for purchase on a sliding scale.

If you can't make the discution but are interested in purchasing the book, visit Wings Press.

During her last visit to the troupe in 2013, Cecile shared what she learned about the nuclear industry following the still-ongoing triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi.

"If the first step toward cure is proper diagnosis, with her powerful Apology to a Whale, Cecile Pineda moves us much closer to finding the cure for a culture that is killing the planet." -Derrick Jensen, author of Earth at Risk: Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet

"In her wonderful Apology to a Whale, Pineda calls on us to recognize that our view of nature as a resource for our convenience and profit is killing the planet. She calls on us to build our lives and our laws around the need to revere and protest the living earth and all its creatures...." -Maude Barlow, author of Blue Future: Protecting Water for People and the Planet Forever

Cecile Pineda is a 2014 finalist for the prestigious Neustadt International Prize for Literature, and Face is her representative work for that award.
Cecile Pineda's latest book is Devil's Tango: How I Learned the Fukushima Step by Step. Published on March 11, 2012 - the one-year anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi disaster - Devil's Tango is Pineda's anguished dissection of the nuclear industry seen through the lens of the industrial and planetary disaster still unfolding at Fukushima Daiichi. As much personal reflection as investigative journalism, Devil's Tango lays bare the connection between nuclear warfare and nuclear energy; it traces the evolution of the author's own consciousness, while recording day-by-day the worsening developments that continue to unfold at Fukushima Daiichi. Pineda's crazy quilt of comic monologues, daily reportage, meditations, and occasional flights of fancy reflects her attempt to come to terms with Fukushima's catastrophic consequences to the planet.
