Next week, The Story of Stuff, by environmentalist Annie Leonard, launches with the author’s appearance on the Colbert Report on Tuesday and an interview with Christine Amanpour on CNN.

Many know the author’s work because of her online video with the same title, which has been viewed by millions and has been used by teachers as a way to get students to think about sustainability. It achieved the ultimate compliment when it was banned by a Montana school board after a parent complained the video’s message is anti-capitalist. It was featured on the front page of the New York Times last May. The author wrote the book to answer questions she received from people had viewed the video online and wanted to know more.

The book received starred reviews in both LJ and Booklist; the PW and Kirkus reviews were also strong.
