David Swanson in Portland

portraitbyshetterlyAntiwar activist, author, radio host and blogger David Swanson comes to Portland Monday, December 16 to discuss and sign copies of his latest book, sure to be a favorite in VFP circles, War No More: The Case for Abolition.

The book talk is scheduled for 7–9pm at Laughing Horse Books, 12 NE 10th Ave. in Portland.

David Swanson’s books include When the World Outlawed War, named by Ralph Nader as one of the six books everyone should read; the best-selling classic War Is A Lie, and Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union, of which Glenn Greenwald said, “There have now been many books written which chronicle the imperial, lawless presidency of the Bush era, but Swanson’s superb new book is one of the very few to examine how we can recover from it and reverse its pernicious trends.”

Swanson is the host of Talk Nation Radio. He helped plan the nonviolent occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington DC in 2011. Swanson holds a master’s degree in philosophy from the University of Virginia. He has worked as a newspaper reporter and as a communications director, with jobs including press secretary for Dennis Kucinich’s 2004 presidential campaign. He blogs at DavidSwanson.org and WarIsACrime.org and works for RootsAction.org. Swanson is Secretary of Peace in the Green Shadow Cabinet.
