Author of "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" Speaking In Salem, 9/21/10

John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, will speak at Smith Auditorium on the Willamette University campus in Salem at 7:30 p.m. on September 21. There is no charge.
Perkins' courage in exposing the underbelly of some of the most powerful and destructive agencies in the world is reminiscent of Daniel Ellsberg, author of The Pentagon Papers. His book is a "must read" for anyone concerned about the state of our world and anyone who wants to improve it.

You will not want to miss hearing John Perkins describe his history and his mission to inspire people toward new consciousness about our inter-connected world - economically and ecologically - so we can create an economy that supports a sustainable, just and peaceful world.

Perkins' books are available at The Willamette University Store and will be sold at the event. Perkins has agreed to sign copies of his books following the lecture. For more information on these books, please call 503.370.6772.

September 21 is International Peace Day. This is a perfect way to celebrate it.

John Perkins' talk launches the MyPeace Project, a month of events in October featuring artistic visions of peace and sustainability by Oregonians that includes display art, performances, music, dance, poetry-prose, films, lectures, green living classes and tours, ending with a "Peace Shindig" celebration. For schedule of events: (503) 585-2767 or www.mypeaceproject.org.
