Great Bay Book Group Discussion with author David W. Moore

April 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the most epic environmental battle in the Seacoast when a small group of passionate people defeated a proposed oil refinery in Great Bay that would have irrevocably changed our region. What can we learn from this story to help us confront today’s environmental threats?

Please join the Great Bay-Piscataqua Waterkeeper and Great Bay Stewards in partnership with 3S Artspace for a book group discussion at 3S with David W. Moore (author of Small Town, Big Oil – The Untold Story of the Women Who Took on the Richest Man in the World-And Won), activists at the center of the story in the 1970s, and those at the forefront of environmental advocacy in our region today.

Melissa Paly, the Conservation Law Foundation’s Great Bay Water Keeper and the Great Bay Stewards serves as host for the book discussion and features David Moore, author of Small Town, Big Oil; Athenaeum member Dudley Dudley, former Durham State Representative; Nancy Sandberg, former Chair of Save Our Shores; Meredith Bennett, daughter of Phyliss Bennett, publisher of Publick Occurences; Kalle Matso, Director of Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership; Amanda Gokee, Climate Reporter, Boston Globe; Christina Dubin, Seacoast Climate Action Now and Beyond Plastics; and others TBA.
