Naomi Klein is publishing a new book about climate change. Titled On Fire, the book will examine how bold climate action can be a blueprint for a just and thriving society.

On Fire is scheduled for a Sept. 10, 2019 release.

The Montreal-born Klein is an award-winning journalist, bestselling author, political thinker and outspoken advocate regarding climate change and the ills of corporate globalization. 

Her previous books include No Is Not Enoughabout the forces behind Donald Trump's successful presidential election campaign, No Logo, which became a cult hit, and This Changes Everything, which also explores climate change and won the Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction.

The book's publisher, Knopf Canada, says Klein makes connections between climate, today's "unravelling world" and humanity's past, present and future.
