Journalist Speaks on “September 11, Weapons of Mass
Destruction and the Bush Policies”

Jonathan Schell, former writer and editor with The New Yorker, has earned a reputation as one of the pre-eminent journalists of our day and a world authority on nuclear weapons.

Schell is the author of a number of important works concerning the threat of nuclear war, including The Fate of the Earth, The Abolition and The Gift of Time. He has also written columns for Newsday and New York Newsday and is peace and disarmament correspondent for The Nation. He currently teaches journalism at The New School for Social Research and at Wesleyan University.

The lecture is the final event of the 2002 Saul O Sidore Lecture Series and will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 9 in the Silver Cultural Arts Center.

The series was established at Plymouth State College in 1979 to bring a variety of speakers to the College each year to address the critical political, social and cultural issues and events of our time. Sidore lectures are offered to the public free of charge.

[Ed note: the omission of the period after the middle initial is not an error. The College follows the wishes of the Sidore family in presenting the name in this fashion.]
