A Special Event
co-hosted by Revolution Books and Barbara's Bookstore
Presented at Barbara's Bookstore 1218 S. Halsted St.


THE GUANTANAMO LAWYERS
:
Guantanamo Lawyers cover
Inside a Prison Outside the Law


The Event will feature a Panel Discussion with

Jonathan Hafetz, GUANTANAMO LAWYERS co-editor and attorney with the National Security Project of the American Civil Liberties Union. Jonathan has represented detainees held in Guantanamo.
H. Candace Gorman Civil Rights attorney currently representing two Guantanamo Bay detainees.
Aziz Huq
, University of Chicago Law School Assistant Professor of Law.

THE GUANTANAMO LAWYERS contains over one hundred personal narratives from attorneys who have represented detainees held at "GTMO" as well as at other overseas prisons, from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan to secret CIA jails or "black sites." Mark Denbeaux and Jonathan Hafetz-themselves lawyers for detainees-collected stories that cover virtually every facet of Guantánamo, and the litigation it sparked. Together, these moving, powerful voices create a historical record of Guantánamo's legal, human, and moral failings, and provide a window into America's catastrophic effort to create a prison beyond the law.

When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs


Film Screening, Presentation and Q&A

A fundraising collaboration with Project Exploration and Revolution Books

Adults $10, students are free



When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs emphasizes not only the novelty of the new species, but also the story they tell about the evolution of crocodiles: the roles they played during the Cretaceous - very different from crocs today - and the unique abilities they still retain that have allowed crocodiles to survive successfully for 200 million years.

Sereno and his team employed a variety of scientific and artistic methods to bring the dynamic story of these Cretaceous crocs to both a scientific and a general audience. In addition to examining the fossil record, Sereno and his colleagues observed, filmed, and dissected modern crocodiles to understand their construction and physiology. Computer tomography was used to study the skull and braincase structures. Cutting-edge artists brought the extinct crocs to life through illustration, flesh modeling, and finally, computer animation. The resulting 144 page publication and full-length National Geographic film, released simultaneously in November 2009, have received acclaim and interest from scientists and enthusiasts around the world. read more... at
PROJECT EXPLORATION


"I see paleontology as 'adventure with a purpose.' How else to describe a science that allows you to romp in remote corners of the globe, resurrecting gargantuan creatures that have never been seen? And the trick to big fossil finds? You've got to be able to go where no one has gone before." - Paul Sereno


In 1999 Sereno co-founded Project Exploration, a nonprofit science education organization that makes science accessible to the public-especially minority youth and girls-through personalized experiences with scientists and science. Project Exploration involves the public in the excitement of scientific discovery.
