Author David Swanson Discusses his Book, “War Is a Lie,” at Baltimore Event

By BillyClub - Posted on 11 January 2011

On Monday evening, Jan. 10, 2011, author David Swanson discussed, and signed, his latest book, “War Is a Lie,” before a SRO audience. The literary happening was held at a Barnes & Noble store, in Baltimore, MD, near the campus of Johns Hopkins U. The event was coordinated by activist Diane Wittner, who also introduced the author. [A fuller version of Mr. Swanson’s book discussion, along with the Q&A session, comments by Debra Sweet and Andy Worthington, the singing of some ballads by the “Charm City Labor Chorus,” will be posted on Vimeo later this week.]
