Small Stories, Big Changes

Small Stories, Big Changes-attachment0

Warren Wilson College will host a panel discussion and book signing with contributing authors of the book “Small Stories, Big Changes” Nov. 11 from 6:30-8 p.m. in Canon Lounge.

This book was “written by ordinary people doing extraordinary things.” Released earlier this year, it highlights community sustainability change-makers. Monday night’s panelists will include Tim Toben, a sustainable builder and developer, Gary Phillips, a pastor and civil rights activist, Lyle Estill, environmentalist writer, and educator Megan Toben.

All of these individuals and their stories of both success and failure, are included in “Small Stories, Big Changes.” During Monday’s discussion, they will share some of their inspiring stories of ways they led sustainability efforts and change throughout their communities.

In the introduction to “Small Stories,” Estill writes:

“What inspires me is those individuals who are on the ground, delivering good work in the name of sustainability. This book is written by people who are actually doing the work that needs to be done. The message of this book is that you are not alone in your fight to effect positive change.”

The event is free and open to the public.
