The 33rd season of Writing Out Loud kicks off with an appearance by nuclear physicist-lecturer Stanton Friedman. Friedman is the original civilian investigator of the Roswell Incident and co-wrote Crash at Corona: The Definitive Study of the Roswell Incident. TOP SECRET/MAJIC, his controversial book about the Majestic 12 group, allegedly established in 1947 to deal with alien technology, was published in 1996 and went through six printings. An expanded new edition was published in 2005. He is the co-author with Kathleen Marden (Betty Hill’s niece) of a 2007 book, Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience. Flying Saucers and Science was published in June 2008 and is in its third printing. Science was Wrong, co-written with Marden, was released in June 2010.
The program will be followed by a reception and book signing hosted by the Friends of the Michigan City Public Library.
Friedman received degrees in physics from the University of Chicago and was employed as a nuclear physicist by companies such as GE, GM, Westinghouse, TRW Systems, Aerojet General Nucleonics and McDonnell Douglas. He became interested in UFOs in 1958 and since 1967 has lectured about them at more than 600 colleges and 100 professional groups. He has published more than 90 UFO papers and appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs, including Larry King Live and many documentaries.
