“As an award-winning journalist Naomi Klein has tackled critical cultural issues that span topics such as corporate brands gone awry, free market policies that dominate the world and, most recently, an analysis of the climate crisis,” said Alison McFarlane, SLCC Vice President for Institutional Advancement.Her books are compelling and provocative as we know her presentation will be as well. We’re pleased to welcome Klein to Salt Lake Community College as our annual Tanner Forum on Social Ethics lecturer.”

Klein will appear November 10, 7 p.m. at the Grand Theatre on SLCC’s South City Campus, 1575 South State Street, Salt Lake City. She will give a 45-minute presentation, followed by a Q&A and then a book signing in the Grand Theatre foyer. The Tanner Forum on Social Ethics is presented by a generous gift from the O.C. Tanner Charitable Foundation and with funding from SLCC Art and Cultural Events programming. The event is free and open to the public, and tickets are not required.


Klein’s latest book, “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate,” is the 2014 winner of the prestigious Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction. Her first book, “No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies,” was also an international bestseller. She is a contributing editor for Harper’s, a reporter for Rolling Stone, an internationally syndicated columnist and a member of the board of directors for 350.org, a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis. Her reporting from Iraq for Harper’s won her the James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism in 2004 and in 2014 she received the International Studies Association’s IPE Outstanding Activist-Scholar award.
