global pollution problem
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate “The Brown Agenda” at the event held Wednesday night, November 11, at the Upper West Side Barnes & Noble on West 82nd and Broadway.
Damon introduced his co-author, Richard Fuller (both shown in picture above). Rich then read from the book’s introduction before taking several thoughtful questions from the audience regarding the ongoing fight against toxic conditions in low and middle income countries.

Covers for two of Damon’s books were released in January. The first was the cover for “The Brown Agenda,” Damon’s collaboration with Richard Fuller, Founder and President of Blacksmith Institute/Pure Earth, the NGO that’s doing such incredible work fighting jaw-dropping instances of pollution all over the world. The book features a foreword by Bryan Walsh, senior environment editor for TIME Magazine, and the cover looks like this:
The second cover is for the German edition of “The Actor’s Art & Craft,” Damon’s first collaboration with Bill Esper. The book features the original foreword by David Mamet, plus a specific foreword for German readers. That cover looks like this:
Evidently, vast differences exist between the German and American-Meisner-based concepts of acting. For instance, as the foreword to the German edition points out, Germans often use a word that translates as “pretend-playing” where, in English, we use the word acting.
