POLITICAL CARTOONIST TED RALL TO INTRODUCE NEW BOOK AT BOOKS&CO.
Wednesday, September 9 at 7 pm
Ted Rall, award-wining political cartoonist, will introduce Snowden, his graphic novel about “notorious whistleblower” Edward Snowden, on Wednesday, September 9 at 7 pm at Books & Co. at The Greene, 4453 Walnut Street, Beavercreek.
As many as ¼ million U.S. citizens with security clearances saw some or all of the same documents revealed by Edward Snowden. Why did he, and no one else, decide to step forward and take on the risk associated with becoming a whistleblower and then a fugitive? In Snowden, Rall delves into Snowden’s early life and work experience, his personality, and the larger issues of privacy, new surveillance technologies, and the recent history of government intrusion.
Rall describes Snowden’ political vision and hopes for the future. In a way, the book tells two stories; Snowden’s and a larger one that describes all of us on the threshold of tremendous technological upheaval and political change.
Rall is a nationally syndicated political cartoonist, opinion columnist, graphic novelist, and occasional war correspondent. He is twice the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and a Pulitzer Prize finalist. He was raised in Kettering, Ohio.
