Hello, all you Anti-nuclear weapons folk! Come out to Lake Forest Park’s Third Place Books this Friday night at 6 for an outstanding program including a powerpoint overview of the Cold War from its beginning. Anne Stadler, KING 5 TV producer in the 1980s will be on the podium with me. She will talk about the power of TV to break down barriers between enemies and the importance of getting to see, hear and become familiar with the Other in times of sabre-rattling retoric between angry governments.
If you are feeling despair or anxiety about the possibility of a peaceful outcome of the current arms build-up, gathering with people to learn about what we did in the 80s to make a difference. Taking action gives you a reason to believe in a different future. I’ll be sharing from Open Borders: A Personal Story of Love, Loss and Anti-war Activism.
Third Place Books will have Open Borders for sale or you can get the e-reader version where you usually get your books.
Bring your friends. I look forward to seeing you Friday, Jan. 25th at 6 p.m.
