Alec, Catherine and I are going to Seattle first for dinner with Noel and then to Town Hall Seattle. The evening there will be opened by The Righteous Mothers. Then Cindy Sheehan and Anthony Arnove will speak.
The Righteous Mothers are four female progressive feminist folk musicians based in the Olympia area. They have fantastic songs including: “Pesky Angels” one of my favorites. http://www.righteousmothers.com
Cindy Sheehan became a prominent American anti-Iraq War activist after the death of her son, Casey Sheehan, who was serving in Iraq. I so admire her. It will be an honor to be in the same room. She is the author of Not One More Mother’s Child and contributor to 10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cindy_Sheehan
Anthony Arnove is the co-editor with Howard Zinn of Voices of a People’s History of the United States (Seven Stories), the long-awaited primary-source companion to A People’s History of the United States – ( “People’s History” is a great book I read many years ago!) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Arnove
I wish Bill could be there with us.
