Mallory McDuff, Ph.D., professor of environmental studies and outdoor leadership at Warren Wilson College, will deliver the college’s annual Andy Summers Memorial Lecture Nov. 14.
Her talk, titled “Sacred Acts: A Religious-Environmental Road Trip of Transformation for Creation,” begins at 7 p.m. in Canon Lounge of the Gladfelter Student Center and is free and open to the public.
McDuff is author of “Natural Saints: How People of Faith are Working to Save God’s Earth” and “Sacred Acts: How Churches are Working to Protect Earth’s Climate.” For all people of faith, her books give specific ideas for sacred acts of justice, from creating church gardens to implementing energy audits.
Summers, who died in 2008 after rapid onset of leukemia, was the longtime minister to students at Warren Wilson. He also taught in the college’s peace and justice studies department.
