A graduate of both Duke and Yale, Eileen Flanagan writes for a wide range of national publications and speaks at conferences, colleges, and religious gatherings. She is the author of The Wisdom to Know the Difference: When to Make a Change--and When to Let Go, which was endorsed by the Dalai Lama and won the Silver Nautilus Book Award. Her forcoming book Renewable: One Woman's Search for Simplicity, Faithfulness, and Hope is due out March 3, 2015. It tells the story of her midlife realization that she was not living up to her potential or her youthful ideals, and the journey that took her to southern Africa and eventually to handcuff herself to the White House fence.

“If you’ve ever felt despair about the state of the world or wondered, ‘What can I do?’ I recommend reading Renewable. Eileen Flanagan’s insightful memoir shows a deep understanding of complex global problems while showing us how one person can change their life while working to change the world we all share.”

 ~Kumi Naidoo, Executive Director Greenpeace International
