CHRIS HEDGES TRIBUTE LUNCHEON
Dear KPFA friend,
Perhaps you've heard Chris Hedges speaking recently on KPFA.
He's done so many times over the years, and he's spoken in public
to increasingly large gatherings in the Bay Area to benefit KPFA.
We retain the kind of ardent respect for him we hold for such other
public intellectuals as Howard Zinn, Alice Walker, Noam Chomsky,
Daniel Ellsberg, Eduardo Galeano, and Michelle Alexander. Because Chris has the courage, vision and voice of a truly great progressive, he is essential for many of us.
Chris will be in Berkeley on June 9th for an evening talk about his excellent new book, Wages of Rebellion; The Moral Imperative of Revolt. We would like to offer him tribute, and hope you might JOIN US FOR LUNCH with him to help us do so. You'll have the opportunity to express your own gratitude to him directly.
Zatar is an eclectic Mediterranean restaurant, family-owned, that uses only naturally-raised meats, organic milk and eggs for their house-made yogurt and pastries; and hand-selected, organic fruits, herbs and vegetables many harvested daily from their own organic garden.
