AUTHOR/JOURNALIST Chris Hedges, whose latest book, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, discusses the perils of unregulated capitalism, will speak at an appearance at the West End Cultural Centre Sept. 21.
Hedges, who has covered conflicts in Latin America and the Middle East and won a Pulitzer Prize in 2002 as part of the New York Times team that covered global terrorism, is now a senior fellow at The Nation Institute.
Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt focuses on what Hedges calls "sacrifice zones," areas of poverty in the U.S. that have been adversely affected by the unfettered search for profit.
Tickets are $25 in advance, from the WECC, Ticketmaster, Mondragon, McNally Robinson, Organic Planet and the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store or $30 at the door, which opens at 7:15 p.m. for Hedges' 8 p.m. talk.
