Clarke College is pleased to announce that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will hold a book signing following his October 17 lecture in Clarke’s Mackin-Mailander Lecture Series. Kennedy’s books are for sale in Clarke’s Whitlow Bookstore and will be available for purchase at the lecture.
Tickets for the lecture are $15 for adults and $5 for students. Reservations can be made on-line at www.clarke.edu/mackin-mailander, by calling (563)584-8642, or at the Clarke College Whitlow Bookstore.
Kennedy, the featured speaker in this year’s Mackin-Mailander Lecture Series, will present “Crimes Against Nature” on Tuesday, October 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Robert and Ruth Kehl Center on the Clarke campus. The theme of this year’s series is “The Relationship Between the Environment and Humanity.”
Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s reputation as a resolute defender of the environment stems from a litany of successful legal actions. Kennedy was named one of Time magazine’s “Heroes for the Planet” for his success helping Riverkeeper lead the fight to restore the Hudson River. The group’s achievement helped spawn more than 125 Waterkeeper organizations across the globe.
Kennedy serves as senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council, chief prosecuting attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper and president of Waterkeeper Alliance. He is also a clinical professor and supervising attorney at Pace College School of Law’s Environmental Litigation Clinic and is co-host of “Ring of Fire” on Air America Radio. Earlier in his career he served as assistant district attorney in New York City.
