Writing Out Loud: Paul Chappell
September 30, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Writing Out Loud continues with Paul Chappell, the author of the seven-book Road to Peace series about ending war, waging peace, the art of living and our shared humanity. The first six published books in the series are Will War Ever End?, The End of War, Peaceful Revolution, The Art of Waging Peace, The Cosmic Ocean, and Soldiers of Peace.
Chappell is an international peace educator who serves as the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation’s peace leadership director. He graduated from West Point, was deployed to Iraq and left active duty as a captain.
Lecturing across the United States and internationally, he also teaches courses and workshops on peace leadership and peace literacy. Chappell grew up in Alabama, the son of a half-black and half-white father who fought in the Korean and Vietnam wars, and a Korean mother. And, having grown up in a violent household, Chappell has forged a new understanding of war and peace, rage and trauma, vision, purpose and hope.
The program is followed by a reception and book signing hosted by the Friends of the Michigan City Public Library. The program is co-sponsored with Michigan City Rotary Club.
Patrons of Writing Out Loud, Michigan City Public Library Endowment Fund and Friends of the Library provide funding for Writing Out Loud. Book Warehouse at Lighthouse Place-Premium Outlets provides books for sale for each event.
