Bookapalooza wheels keep turning

Saturday's post might have conveyed the impression that vacation has superseded the book tour aspect of this road trip, but that would not be the case. Rebecca is making headway on getting the word out about Mainstreaming Torture.

She did a successful book talk in Corvallis, OR, sponsored by the local Vets for Peace, at Grass Roots Books. Nice, well-stocked, friendly store!

The July 27 event at Bluestockings Bookstore in New York City has picked up endorsements from Peace Action New York, Amnesty International and DRUM. In New England, she's added three additional events in Concord, NH, Walpole, MA, and Bristol, RI in addition to the talk at Porter Square Books on July 29. Additional events that we've firmed up include Kennett Square, PA, Birmingham, AL and Albuquerque, NM. You can find all book related events listed here, just as fast as we encounter good wifi to put them up.

Meanwhile the Pacifica radio program, Against the Grain, broadcast a thoughtful interview by CS Soong in which Rebecca discusses how we make ethical judgments and how the USA's forthright embrace of torture is deforming our character. We downloaded and listened to this on the road. She thought it had been good, and it is. Now if only Against the Grain could get faster servers ...

Finally, despite the significant number of miles we've covered driving and hiking, Rebecca has been writing for future publication, striving to re-animate the national discussion about US torture. Updates will follow ...
