The End of Nature, often cited as a classic work on the environment, has been published in 20 languages across six continents. McKibben has published seven other books, the most recent of which is Wandering Home, an insightful meditation on his long walk from Western Vermont to a remote cabin in the Adirondacks. He is also a frequent contributor to the Atlantic, Harper's, and the New York Times. He is presently a Scholar-in-Residence at Middlebury College in Vermont.

McKibben lives simply with his wife and daughter in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. His appearance at Clarkson is sponsored by the Honors Program and the Center for the Environment. Admission to the evening lecture is free and open to the public.
