Vancouver, B.C., activist and author David Suzuki celebrates the launch of his new book, “Letters to My Grandchildren,” at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 14, at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.
In what may be his most personal book, Suzuki draws on experiences and wisdom he has gained over his long life and offers advice, stories, and inspiration to his six grandchildren. In the inspiring letters to his grandchildren, Suzuki speaks passionately about their future; explains why sports, fishing, feminism and failure are important; why it’s dangerous to deny our biological nature; and why Native Americans must lead a revolution. He even has something to say about fashion.
His letters are also chock-full of stories about his childhood and anecdotes about his children and grandchildren when they were small, providing an intimate look at Suzuki’s life as a father and grandfather. He also how his role as a father has affected his beliefs about sustainability, activism and North America’s future.
