At Nightbird, she will discuss and sign her book and be available to greet you one on one afterwards. Rivera has workshops scheduled in Fayetteville the 14th - 16th at OMNI Center, and will be at the Block Street Block Party signing books on the 17th.
This is not your ordinary author tour! Rivera Sun is sweeping the country in Spring 2015. In her wake, she’s leaving seeds of courage and strategies for change.
“People nationwide are reading The Dandelion Insurrection,” the thirty-two year old red-head says, “and now it’s time to share the strategies of nonviolent action that make the story so wildly exciting.”
Sun will be visiting 40+ cities and towns speaking, reading from her novels, and teaching workshops on the strategies of nonviolent action behind The Dandelion Insurrection’s story of change.
In her workshops, the powerhouse activist and author brings a focused approach to the dynamics and strategy of nonviolent action, covering essentials for planning campaigns, including classics such as Pillars of Support, Spectrum of Allies, 198 Methods of Nonviolent Action, and more. Applicable to anyone working to gain living wages, prevent police brutality, ban fracking, end the climate crisis, stop wars, halt drones, or any other social justice issue, these workshops share the skills of planning powerful campaigns that use nonviolence effectively to make change.
