Mike Palecek will speak and read from his two latest books "Cost of Freedom: the Anthology of Peace and Activism" and "Iowa Terror."
Described by Howard Zinn as a writer with “passion, wit,” and “a profound social conscience,” Palecek has been writing antiwar, political novels for over 10 years.
A coffee-table style book crammed with photos, essays, poetry and art from everyday peace activists, Cost of Freedom has garnered praise from Ramsey Clark, Ralph Nader, Thom Hartmann, Harry Belafonte and Noam Chomsky, who writes that Cost of Freedom “should inspire many more to join in these efforts to create a powerful force of concerned citizens that cannot be ignored.”
This event is free to the public. Members of Congress will be charged a substantial fee for not representing the public. There will not be an Easter egg hunt. Books will be available for purchase from the author.
