An event at Bryant Park Reading Room on Wednesday with some great green authors and experts

If you're by any chance on New York next Wednesday (and why shouldn't you? it should be a nice day with 80 degrees), we got an offer you can't refuse: an event at the beautiful Bryant Park Reading Room with some of the most interesting green authors and experts around. And it's free!

The list of participants include a CEO of one of the most innovative green companies and the author of "Revolution in the Bottle", the editor of Edible Manhattan, a Canadian journalist who wrote a book on her 366-day journey to live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle, making one positive change each day and a food writer who chronicles in a new book her experiences as an urban farmer.

Sounds interesting? Here are more details on the event:
