Author Event: Miles Howe launches “Debriefing Elsipogtog”

Announcements | Social & Political

Miles Howe of Halifax Media Co-op spent the entire summer of 2013 in Kent County.

His book, Debriefing Elsipogtog, The Anatomy of a Struggle,  is the first book describing the complex situation arising during that intense, landmark summer.

Much went on that summer that most of us had little idea about, even if we participated from time to time in the protests.  It should be a compelling presentation.

The launch takes place Thursday, June 18, 7 pm at Thunder & Lightning.  Everyone is welcome.  Admission is free.
