Austin Climate Action Network says
Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, and author of several books, including her 2007 New York Times bestseller, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. Her most recent book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, won the 2014 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction and was shortlisted for the 2015 PEN Literary Awards in the nonfiction category. Klein is a contributing editor for Harper’s and a reporter for Rolling Stone, and she writes a regular column for The Nation and The Guardian. In 2014 she received the International Studies Association’s IPE Outstanding Activist-Scholar award, and in 2015 she received the Izzy Award honoring outstanding achievement in independent journalism and media.
