After more than 20 years of bringing attention to progressive issues underreported by the mainstream media, Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! program now airs simultaneously on satellite and cable television, more than 1,400 radio stations throughout the world, and the internet. Her many honors include the first Right Livelihood Award, a lifetime achievement award from Harvard’s Nieman Foundation for Journalism, and the George Polk Award. Goodman’s five New York Times bestselling books include Breaking the Sound Barrier and her newest work, Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America. Now she returns to the Free Library to analyze and contextualize the last year’s tempestuous political events. 

Please allow extra time to get to Parkway Central, due to extensive road work in the area.
