Author Event: Paul Loeb’s ‘Soul of a Citizen’

April 12, 2010 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Author Event: Paul Loeb’s ‘Soul of a Citizen’

Soul of a CitizenWith over 100,000 copies in print, Paul Loeb’s Soul of a Citizen has become a classic handbook for budding activists, veteran organizers, and anyone who wants to make their voices heard and actions count. It’s inspired thousands of citizens as an antidote to powerlessness and despair.

Eleven years after Soul’s original publication, St. Martin’s has published a wholly updated new edition addressing the challenges and opportunities of our very different time.

Howard Zinn calls it “Rich, engaging, clearly written. An essential book for anyone who wants to work for change .” Alice Walker writes, “The voices Loeb finds demonstrate that courage can be another name for love.” Habitat for Humanity founder Millard Fuller says, “Paul Loeb brings hope for a better world in a time when we so urgently need it. And Bill Moyers writes, of Paul’s The Impossible Will Take a Little While, “This book can even make one hopeful about the future despite so many signs to the contrary.”

Please visit Soul’s website for more information and pass the word to others. If you can’t make it to the DC event, Paul’s also speaking in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Portland and Denver. Click here for details.

This event is cosponsored by the Institute for Policy Studies.
