Library to Host Author/Filmmaker Michael Tobias

January 20, 2015, at 6pm, Tompkins County Public Library, 101 East Green Street, Ithaca


Tompkins County Public Library, in partnership with Zorba Press, will present “How to Save our Earth: An Evening With Michael Tobias” on Tuesday, January 20 at 6 p.m. in the Library’s BorgWarner Community Room.

A global ecologist, philosopher, activist, author and filmmaker, Tobias will share a short film anthology, spanning his more than three-decade career in ecological filmmaking, and host an informal discussion with audience members about the future of biodiversity and the ethics implicit to life throughout the planet.

Tobias is the president of the Dancing Star Foundation. He has helped to shape public policy and worked to save habitats, species and individuals in more than 100 countries and advocated--through more than 100 films and 50 books--for an all-inclusive future.

This program is free and open to the public.
