'Renewable: One Woman's Search For Simplicity, Faithfulness And Hope'

Author and activist Eileen Flanagan
She Writes Press

At 49, author and environmental activist Eileen Flanagan hardly recognized herself.

Her large home, her stocks in a hydraulic fracturing company and her family's multitude of unnecessary gadgets all seemed at odds with the way she lived three decades ago as a young Peace Corps volunteer in Botswana. 

Her latest book, "Renewable: One woman's search for simplicity, faithfulness and hope" (She Writes Press/2015) follows Flanagan's path to becoming the leader of a small group of environmental activists who forced PNC Bankto stop financing mountain top removal.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Flanagan about her book and EQAT's successful campaign.

Flanagan reads tonight at 7 p.m. at The Regulator Bookshop in Durham.  

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
