Nothing beats the dog days of summer like a good read, which is why we are pleased to present two new titles from Goldman Prize winners for you to check out:
“Optimism: Reflections on a Life of Action,” provides a glimpse into 1990 Goldman Prize winner Bob Brown’s life since retiring from Australian Parliament in 2012. It focuses on Brown’s experiences, big and small, and illustrates why he remains optimistic about the future.
“It is a fortunate life if a person feels more optimistic than ever before. That’s me,” Brown said.
2011 Goldman Prize winner Hilton Kelley’s new autobiography, “A Lethal Dose of Smoke and Mirrors,” describes Kelley’s journey to becoming an environmental activist and seeks to inspire young people to take risks to make a difference in the world.
Kelley describes his own journey to becoming an environmental activist as one of having the “audacity” to believe that he could take on the oil and gas industry in his hometown. He hopes to help other young leaders believe they too can take on these giants in their own communities.
