Author David Swanson will speak at Mayday Books on Monday, August 27 from 7 to 9 pm, at 301 Cedar Ave S on the West Bank in Minneapolis.
August 27, 2018, marks 90 years since the single biggest news story of 1928, the signing by the world’s major nations of the Kellogg-Briand Pact, outlawing war. The treaty, still on the books, is named, as is Kellogg Boulevard in St. Paul, for Frank Kellogg, the only Minnesotan to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.
Swanson is the author of When the World Outlawed War, as well as War Is A Lie, War Is Never Just, and numerous other books, including his latest, Curing Exceptionalism. Swanson will speak on the past, present, and future of efforts to reduce and end war. He’ll take questions and sign books. The bookstore event is sponsored by Women Against Military Madness and Mayday Books.
