The Smithsonian's Lemelson Center presents a special program featuring renowned author and global environmentalist Lester Brown. In this latest
installment in the Center's "Portrait of Invention" series, Marc Pachter will engage Brown, founder and president of the Earth Policy Institute, in a conversation about the challenges of sustaining civilization. There will be a half-hour Q&A following the conversation.

Lester Brown has been hailed as "the guru of the environmental movement." Through this oral history-style interview and subsequent conversation, visitors will get to see Brown's strong influence on the early environmental movement and learn about solutions to today's environmental problems.

Mr. Brown will autograph copies of his latest book, Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing
to Save Civilization
, following the program.
