6:00 p.m. - Reception
7:00 p.m. - Program

_Other Lands Have Dreams: From Baghdad to Pekin Prison_ is three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly's gripping account of her time in Iraq, from the first Gulf War through 12 years of sanctions to the U.S. invasion that began with Operation Shock and Awe and continues with the bloody occupation.

Kelly, a co-founder of Voices in the Wilderness, returned to the U.S. to face a federal prison sentence for protesting at the School of the Americas, the torture and assassin training-ground at Ft. Benning, Georgia. From her cell, Kelly recounts in vivid and harrowing detail the miserable conditions in U.S. prisons, where young mothers are sealed away in the name of the merciless war on drugs. A stunning book by a true American hero.

Copies of _Other Lands Have Dreams_ will be available for purchase and signing.
