Discussion and planning meeting for
OCTOBER 22
NATIONAL DAY OF PROTEST
TO STOP POLICE BRUTALITY, REPRESSION AND THE CRIMINALIZATION OF A GENERATION
You should take part in the October 22nd events in your area because —
**You want to help create the most powerful, most visible protest possible on a national basis
** You want to STOP the LIES told about people stopped, beaten or killed by police – "they must have been doing something wrong or it wouldn’t have happened to them" -- and let people know what the real stories are, told by the families of the victims who take part in October 22nd
** You want to create unity among the different groups of people being attacked – UNITE TO FIGHT! (read more at October 22nd Coalition website)

A Banned Books Week Presentation

Warren Brown is Mark Twain in
CATCH THE TWAIN!!!
 
Give a 10$ donation and get a cd of CATCH THE TWAIN
 
Join us in an engaging evening of an uproariously authentic characterization of Mark Twain's stories and lecture series guaranteed to entertain audiences.
A first-person Chautauqua-style audience question and answer session is included with each program. The program promotes an appreciation for humanity, education, and literacy in a way that is humorous and inspirational, and historically amusing.
Warren Brown, a Mark Twain scholar, received the Studs Terkel Humanities Service Award for his Chautauqua-style portrayal of Samuel Clemens, "bridging the lessons of history with the demands of contemporary living." Mr. Brown's program, Catch the Twain, is endorsed by the Illinois Humanities Council, the Illinois Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Warren says he struggled all through school, "The hardest eight years of my life...was 1st grade." Nevertheless, Warren has a degree from the University of Illinois.
