Monday, August 6th at 7:00pm ~ Centre Congregational Church, 193 Main Street, Brattleboro, VT
Award-winning author Cecile Pineda of Berkeley, California will discuss her recent book,
Devil’s Tango, How I Learned the Fukushima Step by Step
published by WingsPress. Devil’s Tango chronicles the recent meltdowns of nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture Japan. The book demonstrates that the catastrophe has exposed the world and its people to disastrous amounts of lethal nuclear radiation and that those in authority have worked to deceive the public with regard to the extent of danger. The book signing and author’s talk is free and open to the public.
Using short, separate entries on a timeline covering the first year of the Fukushima Daiichi disaster’s, she juxtaposes the personal and immediate with political commentary, corporate exposes, and scientific data. And by giving each entry, each experience, each reflection its due, she pieces them back together again. And it’s the authenticity of these disparate pieces that makes them into a whole. In so doing, Pineda lets us glimpse how we too can bring a kind of wholeness,or healing, to our fractured world. — Joanna Macy, Eco-philosopher and author
“Pineda’s masterful framing of the urgency for readers to learn from the Japanese nuclear disaster and the machinations of its industry handlers makes Devil’s Tango one of the most important and required reads this year….” — Jeff Biggers, Huffington Post
