The Paradise Theater
Book signing following the talk with Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan.
Tickets can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets or in person at High Country News and Cirque Cyclery in Paonia.
An intimate reception before the talk with Amy Goodman includes preferred seating for the event, drinks and hors d’oeuvres with Amy, and a signed book.
The new book is a celebration of the acclaimed news program Democracy Now! and the extraordinary heroes who have moved our democracy forward. It will be on sale before and after the event.
In 1996 Amy Goodman began hosting a news radio show called Democracy Now! to focus on the issues and movements that are too often ignored by the corporate media. Today Democracy Now! is the largest public media collaboration in the US, broadcasting on over 1400 public television and radio stations around the world, with millions accessing it online at democracynow.org. Now Amy, along with her journalist brother, David and co-author Denis Moynihan, share stories of the heroes—the whistleblowers, the organizers, the protesters—who have brought about remarkable change.
This important book looks back over the past two decades of Democracy Now! and the powerful movements and charismatic leaders who are re-shaping our world. Goodman takes the reader along as she goes to where the silence is, bringing out voices from the streets of Ferguson, to Staten Island, Wall Street, South Carolina to East Timor—and other places where people are rising up to demand justice. Democracy Now! is the modern day underground railroad of information, bringing stories from the grassroots to a global audience.
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard honored Goodman with the 2014 I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence Lifetime Achievement Award....
