Mon, May 23, 2016 12:00 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

In 1996 Amy Goodman started a radio show called Democracy Now! to focus on issues that are underreported by mainstream news coverage. Today the award-winning program airs simultaneously on satellite and cable television, more than 1,000 radio stations throughout the world, and the internet. Goodman is a recipient of the first Right Livelihood Award, a commendation for personal courage and social transformation that is known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize”; a lifetime achievement award from Harvard’s Nieman Foundation for Journalism; and the George Polk Award. She is the author of five New York Times bestselling books, including Breaking the Sound Barrier. Her new book is a celebration of the progressive heroes who have brought about remarkable change over the last two decades.
