THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT! Bill McKibben will be speaking at Western Washington University's PAC Mainstage as part of Western Reads on Sat., May 17 at 3pm. Tickets are available through the Western box office online, or by calling (360) 650-6146.
This month's special guest is Bill McKibben, author of a dozen books about the environment, beginning with The End of Nature in 1989, regarded as the first book for a general audience on climate change, and most recently, Oil and Honey, as well as a memoir, Wandering Home. He is a founder of the grassroots climate campaign, which has coordinated 15,000 rallies in 189 countries since 2009. Time Magazine called him "the planet's best green journalist," and the Boston Globe said in 2010 that he was "probably the country's most important environmentalist." Tonight's musical guest is local singer-songwriter Dana Lyons.

The Chuckanut Radio Hour, a recipient of Bellingham's prestigious Mayor's Arts Award, is a radio variety show that began in January 2007. Each Chuckanut Radio Hour features a guest author and includes guest musicians, performance poet Kevin Murphy, Cascadia Weekly columnist Alan Rhodes, an episode of "The Bellingham Bean" serial radio comedy, and some groaner jokes by hosts Chuck & Dee Robinson and announcer Rich Donnelly. The Chuckanut Radio Hour's first guest was Erik Larson and has since included Alexander McCall Smith, Elizabeth George, Cheryl Strayed, Sherman Alexie, Tom Robbins and Garrison Keillor, among many others. The Radio Hour airs every Saturday evening at 6pm and Sunday at 9pm on SPARK RADIO, KMRE 102.3FM.

Tickets for the Chuckanut Radio Hour are $5 and are available at Village Books and at Doors open at 6:30pm, and you must be seated by 6:45pm as the show begins promptly at 7pm. Tonight's show will be at the Heiner Theater, after all. Co-sponsored by Whatcom Community College Foundation, 12th Street Shoes, and Westside Pizza.
