Zinn at OSU tonight!

Dr. Zinn, the author of "A People's History of the United States" will be speaking at OSU in Corvallis tonight at 7:30.
Howard Zinn, historian, playwright and activist is a speaker of extraordinary power and vision. The winner of the 1998 Lannan Literary Award and the 1999 Upton Sinclair Award, Zinn is Professor Emeritus of political science at Boston University. He received his doctorate in history from Columbia University and a postdoctoral Fellow in East Asian Studies at Harvard University. His first book, La Guardia in Congress was an Albert Beveridge Prize winner. He is most famous for A People's History of the United States, "a brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those who have been exploited politically and economically and whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories" (Library Journal). Recent books by Zinn include Declarations of Independence: Cross-Examining American Ideology and You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train: A Personal History of Our Times and The Zinn Reader
