SAL Presents

From the former vice president and #1 New York Times bestselling author comes An Inconvenient Truth for everything—a frank and clear-eyed assessment of the emerging forces that are reshaping our world and will continue to do so in the decades to come.

Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history. With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the front lines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock and John Naisbitt’s Megatrends.

Moderated by Professor David Domke.

Please note that this is a special event.  FLEX and CHOOSE YOUR OWN SUBSCRIPTION do not apply.

Parking for the Al Gore event will be available on a first come, first served basis in the Polyclinic Parking Garage (entrance on Broadway). This lot will be free and open at 6pm. There is also limited $5 parking in a paid lot adjacent to the church.

Books will be available to be picked up at the venue the evening of the event beginning at 6pm under the name of the ticket purchaser.
