Silicon Valley Reads: In discussion with Heather White, author of One Green Thing

When: Thursday,  February 1, 1 p.m.

Where: Los Gatos Library, 100 Villa Ave

Don’t miss the chance to hear noted environmentalist Heather White discuss her book One Green Thing: Discover Your Hidden Power to Help Save the Planet.

In her revolutionary call to action, Heather, who has been called “the Brené Brown of the environmental movement,” shows how to contribute to the climate movement in a non-overwhelming way through a process of self-discovery and setting the intention each day to take a small step to care for the planet.

In One Green Thing, she offers an easy-to-follow guide for climate action woven together with funny stories from her childhood in East Tennessee, anecdotes from 20+ years of environmental advocacy, and scenes from parenting two GenZ daughters in Bozeman, Montana.

Heather is an environmental lawyer, writer, consultant, author, motivational speaker, nonprofit executive, and a former Senate staffer. She’s testified before Congress; made many television appearances and has been cited in numerous national publications. An accomplished public speaker, she’s been featured at a wide variety of  organizations such as Clinton Global Initative, TEDxBoston, and Warner Music Group/

Named “One of the Top 100 Women in Wellness” by MindBodyGreen, Heather is also a recipient of the Women in Sustainability Leadership Awards among other honors.
