Crossing Lines and Doing Time―Evening with author Rosalie Riegle
Rosalie Riegle, author of Doing Time for Peace: Resistance, Family and Community and Crossing the Line: Nonviolent Resisters Speak Out for Peace, is a peace activist and oral historian from Michigan and Illinois. She taught English for 33 years at Saginaw Valley State University and co-founded two Catholic Worker houses in Saginaw, Michigan. Dr. Riegle argues that if we are to make democracy work, we must work politically across the spectrum, both within the system and outside it. Join Rosalie Riegle as she shares her two new books about war resisters who have risked arrest and sometimes long prison terms to speak in the loudest way possible against US militarism.
