On Monday, April 21st, KBOO Community Radio proudly presents Christopher Hedges, veteran investigative reporter, award-winning war correspondent and author of War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning. This timely book is a potent warning and eloquent critique of humanity's love affair with war and the unforeseen consequences for both winners and losers.
Hedges has been a war correspondent for The New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor for over 15 years. He has served as the Middle East Bureau Chief for The Dallas Morning News and as a National Public Radio correspondent in El Salvador and Buenos Aires. From Guatemala to Columbia to the Persian Gulf to the former Yugoslavia, Hedges has chronicled more than a decade of armed conflict. Hedges was also a part of the journalistic team that won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for coverage of global terrorism.
War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning has global significance and should be mandatory reading for the Bush Administration, as many of them, including the President, have not served in the military or witnessed the carnage and devastation of war.
Please join the local community on Monday, April 21st, at The Hollywood Theatre for an evening with one of the most outspoken critics of this illegitimate war. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the lecture begins at 7:30 PM. For more information call KBOO at 503-231-8032 x 208 or check the Web site for details at www.kboo.fm
