In conversation about her new book, Not One More Mother's Child.
Q & A with the audience, book signing
In 2004, Cindy Sheehan lost her son Casey Austin Sheehan in an ambush in Iraq, and thus began her journey of speaking out and testifying in the halls of Congress. In August 2005, she went to Crawford, Texas, to confront President Bush, unexpectedly opening the floodgates of a renewed American peace movement. Ten thousand people joined her, and millions more worldwide followed. Reflecting on war and peace, truth and accountability, she takes the Bush administration to task. Equal parts compelling memoir and call to action, Not One More Mother's Child tells in Sheehan's distinctive voice how historical events and personal tragedy transformed her from grieving mom to ardent activist.
