Wednesday, Nov 9 - War Resisters League

Wednesday night at 8 PM.  War Resisters League 2012 calendar editor Liz Roberts.  Yes, a departure this week from books, to pay homage to a tradition, sadly about to be over.  After a 57-year publication streak, the War Resister's League, our nation’s enduring nonviolent direct action community, presents its final personal appointment calendar. This final edition features dazzling full-color reproductions of all 57 previous covers, a living record of images and words collected to celebrate anti-war, peace and social justice organizing. I’ll speak with Liz Roberts, editor of this final issue, about the artists, screenwriters, activists, poets and historians who contributed over the years, from Einstein to Grace Paley to John Sayles, and share some of the best of the calendar.  This show arrives just in time for your holiday gift giving, and the calendar was a recent pledge drive premium.  Join me to celebrate the 2012 War Resisters League calendar --- art and history in your hands every day of the year, and a document memorializing decades of voices and lives making art for peace.   Thanks for listening on the radio, online, or anytime via station archives download, free for 90 days from broadcast. Thanks for your support of our recent fund drive.
