Quit Money Day

Imagining a world beyond currency.

April 18, 7PM

April 17 is Tax Day, when we look back on a year of hours worked, salaries earned, and dollars spent. Never do we feel more entwined in the money system and its tentacle institutions of banks and government. On April 18, let's take the day to imagine greater independence from that system.

The Missoula Public Library invites you to an author reading and panel discussion on the nature of money, our seeming addiction to the stuff, and ideas for a sustainable and fulfilling life beyond material wealth.

  • Daniel Suelo, who has successfully lived 12 years without money or barter, and the subject of Sundeen's book

  • Kate Keller, General Coordinator of Missoula Community Food Co-op and participant in Occupy Missoula
  • Bob Giardano, Executive Director of Missoula Institute for Sustainable Transportation and founder of Free Cycles
  • Josh Slotnick, Co-Founder and Peas Farm, Director of Garden City Harvest and Lecturer in the UM Environmental Studies Program
