I am glad to have gotten to spend some time with Ed Fallon since I returned to Iowa last year. I went to Minneapolis last February on a trip he organized to take a group of water protectors to demonstrate in front of the US Bank headquarters. September 1 – 8, this year I joined the First Nation-Farmer Climate Unity March that he, Bold Iowa, and Indigenous Iowa, organized. Following is information about Ed’s book, Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim:
Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim is Ed Fallon’s memoir from the 2014 Great March for Climate Action. On the 3,100-mile, 8-month walk from LA to DC, marchers became a mobile village — weathering harsh conditions, sharing joys and sorrows, and intensifying their commitment to the cause as they sounded the alarm about climate change.
Through humor and candid introspection, Ed shares his experience on the March and how it brought into focus his lifelong search for love and meaning — even as intense, interpersonal dramas threatened to tear the March community apart.
Purchase both hardcover and paperback books here.
Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim will also soon be available as an audio book and through Kindle. All proceeds go to Climate March, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization continuing the work of the Great March for Climate Action.
Attend the book launch on Sunday, December 2, 2018, 2:00-4:00 p.m. at 500 E Locust Street (third floor) in Des Moines. We’ll have beverages and light homemade snacks to share. Thanks to Downtown Disciples for providing the space.
