Solar One is honored to have friend and local writer Ben Jervey join the Green Renter for a discussion of his recently published work, The Big Green Apple (Globe Pequote Press, 2006, $14.95). For the growing number of us who endeavor each day to creatively reconcile our love for New York with our desire to reduce our impact on the planet, Ben has done us all a true solid. Loaded with information on everything from environmental events and organizations, to joining a CSA and buying green electricity and household products, the book reads something like a cross between a Lonely Planet guide to NYC and a top-notch environmental studies textbook.

Ben will share some of the inspirations, tribulations, and amusing encounters that he experienced in the process of writing, as well as discuss his current and future projects. Guests can purchase signed copies of The Big Green Apple from the author at a special Solar One bargain price of $12.
