Lannan Foundation and Nation Books present author Chris Hedges with Reverend Jeremiah Wright
The Newberry Library
Chicago, IL
Share this event:



Chris Hedges, journalist, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and former veteran war correspondent is a senior fellow at the Nation Institute and Truthdig.com columnist. His newest book, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, a collaboration with Joe Sacco, is a searing account of their travels through the sacrifice zones of the U.S. (Pine Ridge, South Dakota; Camden, New Jersey; Southern West Virginia and Immokalee, Florida), those areas that have been offered up for exploitation in the name of profit, progress, and technological advancement. In words and drawings Hedges and Sacco show us what life looks like in places where the marketplace rules without constraints, where human beings and the natural world are used and then discarded to maximize earnings.

His books include The World As It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress; Death of the Liberal Class; and Empire of Illusion.

Hedges will speak about poverty in the U.S. followed by a conversation with Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Book signing and reception to follow.
