HOUSE NEWS: Additional Jim Douglass event!
For students (and others), Rusty Poulette will host Jim Douglass on the UF campus tomorrow, Thursday, at 3:30pm for a discussion on his book and other matters. You can reach Rusty at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information. I’ll be dropping Jim off at the Presbyterian/Disciples Student Center on University Ave across from UF at 3:15pm, so if you’re interested, people can join us there before 3:15; then we’ll walk over to the Plaza of the Americas for a discussion with Jim (so you could also just go to the Plaza and look for us there by 3:30pm). More information on Jim is below, including the correct time for his Friday luncheon talk at Westminster Presbyterian Church.
JIM DOUGLASS ON JFK: We are really excited to have Jim Douglass join us this week to talk about his new book, JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters. Jim is an author, activist and theologian (as well as fellow CW) and he will join us at the Roundtable on Thursday at 6pm as part of his current book tour. He’ll discuss with us his research regarding the Kennedy assassination, its repercussions for peace in the 20th and now 21st century, and why it matters to us today. Please bring a dish to share if you can!
If you absolutely can’t make it on Thursday, Jim will also be the featured speaker at a Friday noon luncheon which will take place at Westminster Presbyterian Church (bring your own lunch) at the corner of NW 16th Ave and 34th Street. This event is being sponsored by the Gainesville Interfaith Peace Center, Emmanuel Mennonite Church, CODEPink, and others.
