    To the Best of Our Knowledge Henry David Thoreau Henry David Thoreau died 150 years ago, and he's still a great American icon. But have you ever wondered exactly why? Thoreau wasn't exactly the model environmentalist he's often made out to be. And his account of living at Walden Pond is partly fictionalized; he spent nine years writing and revising it. We examine Thoreau's legacy and why he still inspires us.

    Living On Earth Hope for a New Global Climate Deal Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UN Climate Secretariat, visited the program's studios on her way to international negotiations in Bonn, Germany. The Bonn session is one of many leading up to a meeting in Paris, France in 2015 when nations have pledged to sign a binding agreement to curb global warming gases. Secretary Figueres told host Steve Curwood she's sure there will be a global deal because there is no other choice, and it's in every country's interest.

The weekly broadcasts showcase Keillor's gifts as a writer, storyteller, producer and performer, and are listened to by over 4 million Americans. Humorist and long-time New Yorker staff writer Calvin Trillin is a beloved chronicler of culture. Though his writing about food began as comic relief from his more serious pieces, it has earned him a dedicated readership and has been collected in three books including "American Fried," "Alice Let's Eat" and "Third Helpings." Trillin's other works include "Messages From My Father," "Remembering Denny" and "About Alice." His most recent book is "Dogfight: The 2012 Presidential Campaign in Verse." Both Keillor and Trillin celebrated 32 years of City Arts & Lectures broadcasts from the Herbst Theater, on April 30, 2013.
