TOM HAYDEN
reading & booksigning for "Ending the War in Iraq"
Wednesday, June 27 at 7 pm
at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco)

As a leading antiwar figure in the 1960s, Tom Hayden was one of a small number of Americans engaged in dialogue with both sides during the Paris peace talks. As an Irish American, he spent ten years supporting the peace process leading up to the Good Friday Agreement. And, as a California legislator for eighteen years, he has devoted himself to writing about and trying to prevent inner-city violence. Hayden remains an antiwar activist, and is credited with initiating the 2005 Congressional exit strategy hearings. Join us as he speaks about his new book, "Ending the War in Iraq. "

Tom Hayden was a founding member of the Students for a Democratic Society and the author of the "Port Huron Statement," which was described by Howard Zinn as “one of those historic documents which represents an era.” Hayden was also one of the famous “Chicago Seven.” He later served in the California State Assembly (1982-1992) and the State Senate (1992-2000), and was a candidate for Governor of California and Mayor of Los Angeles.
