Peter Galbraith: Unintended Consequences
Following his New York Times-bestselling The End of Iraq, Peter Galbraith describes the unprecedented challenges the next president will inherit in the Middle East. Former U.S. Ambassador to Croatia, Galbraith is one of Washington’s leading authorities on Iraq. In Unintended Consequences, he not only shows how the Iraq war has exposed American weakness, but focuses on what can be done for the benefit of the U.S., its allies, and the Iraqis. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store.
For those wanting to hear Peter Galbraith, but also not wanting to miss the Vice Presidential Debate at 6 pm, we will have television monitors set up for viewing at Town Hall. Galbraith has agreed to provide his analysis of the debate and take a few questions about it before segueing into his talk. Doors will open at 5:30.
Tickets are $5 and are available at www.brownpapertickets.com , 800/838-3006 and at the door beginning at 6:30. Town Hall members receive priority seating. Downstairs at Town Hall, enter on Seneca Street.
“Last Friday was INSANE. It was packed, standing room only, and a lot of fun. The unanimous opinion was that we had to do it again for the Veeps.”
6:00, get there early if you want a seat!
