THE IMPOSSIBLE WILL TAKE A LITTLE WHILE:
HOPE IN A TIME OF FEAR

With Paul Loeb, Susan Griffen, Toni Mirosevich and (tentatively) Mark Hertsgaard

Wednesday September 1 at 7:00 PM
New College of California, 777 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA

Free

How do we keep on when times get tough? Paul Loeb, author of the underground bestseller Soul of a Citizen, and the just-released The Impossible Will Take a Little While: A Citizen’s Guide to Hope in a Time of Fear (Basic Books, August 2004), will explore what keeps us going despite all the obstacles.

Loeb, whom Susan Sontag has called “a national treasure” for his work on courage and conscience, will be joined by book contributors Susan Griffin, Toni Mirosevich and (tentatively) Mark Hertsgaard. They’ll explore what it’s like to go up against Goliath, whether South African apartheid, the iron fist of Eastern European dictatorship, or Mississippi segregation. Their stories don’t sugarcoat the obstacles. But they replenish the wellsprings of our commitment by showing what keeps us keeping on--even when the odds seem overwhelming.

Barbara Ehrenreich says, "For anyone worn down by four years of Bushism, The Impossible is a bracing double cappuccino!" MoveOn cofounder Joan Blades says, “As I read these stories, I’m reminded yet again of the incredible power individuals have when we come together.” And Arianna Huffington writes, “Put away your Prozac and pick up The Impossible Will Take a Little While.” See http://www.theimpossible.org and please tell your friends.
