Veterans for Peace presents author David Swanson speaking about his highly acclaimed book, “War is a Lie” which recently went into its second printing. Swanson is on a national book tour to promote War is a Lie with scheduled book readings in Berkeley, St. Paul, Minnesota, and Sarasota, Florida among other locations.
David Swanson is a nationally-recognized journalist, blogger and radio host. He is a 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee. Swanson blogs at: DavidSwanson.org and WarIsACrime.org which features in-depth discussions on topics such as whistleblowers, military veterans speaking against war, environmental justice and the struggle against mass incarceration.
Daniel Ellsberg has called War is a Lie “A terrific tool for recognizing and resisting war lies before it is too late.” Military veteran Geoffrey Millard writes, “Not since General Smedley Butler’s War is a Racket has a simpler, more brilliant, or truer book been published,” while political analysis Steve Cobble notes, “Reading War is a Lie is like reading Mark Twain’s “War Prayer,” only in book form!”
The event will be held on Saturday, May 21 at 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Gainesville, Florida Address: 4225 NW 34th St, Gainesville, FL 32605. David Swanson’s talk will be followed by a book signing. Refreshments will be served.
