GARY YOUNGE at Town Hall
Co-presented with TOWN HALL CIVICS Series. Award-winning Guardian and Nation journalist and columnist Gary Younge has written a careful, telling, damning book of what this country has let happen with guns so prevalent in its midsts with Another Day in the Death of America: A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives (Nation Books). “This is Gary Younge’s masterwork: you will never read news reports about gun violence the same way again. Brilliantly reported, quietly indignant and utterly gripping. A book to be read through tears.” —Naomi Klein. “Gary Younge’s Another Day in the Death of America is a harrowing account of children’s lives cut short by the ubiquity of violence in the United States. Drawn from suburbs and cities of every demographic, these sensitively researched portraits of virtually unknown victims and their grieving families expose the structural ties of race, class, and lack of gun control. Younge’s book completes the picture of what violence looks like in contemporary America, and should be required reading for anyone naming themselves American.” —Claudia Rankine. $5 tickets are available at the door or in advance via www.townhallseattle.org (1.888.377.4510). Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca).
