When: Saturday, October 26, 2013, 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Where: Cambridge Friends Meeting • 5 Longfellow Park • near Harvard Square • Cambridge

Oral historian Rosalie Riegle reads from her two new books:  Doing Time for Peace:  Resistance, Family and Community and Crossing the Line:  Nonviolent Resisters Speak Out for Peace in an evening of education and inspiration.

Recipient of the 2013 Vox Populi Award from the Oral History Association, "for outstanding achievement in using oral history to create a more just and human world," Riegle interviewed more than 173 peaceworkers "called to civil disobedience." 

From the Plowshares Movement - the Berrigans, Sisters Carol Gilbert and Ardeth Platte - to Frances Crowe and Hattie Nestel - stories about life-long active resistance to war and injustice are told. 

Rosalie Riegle is Professor Emerita in English at Saginaw Valley State University, University Center, Michigan.  She is a member of the National Committee of the War Resisters League, she coordinated six nonviolence training sessions leading up to the NATO protests in Chicago in 2012 and has been arrested herself at Creech AFB for protesting drones.
