POLITICAL CARTOONIST TED RALL TO VISIT

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9; 7 PM

TED RALL, award-winning political cartoonist, will introduce his graphic novel, Snowden. As many as ¼ million U.S citizens with security clearance saw some or all of the same documents revealed by Edward Snowden. Why did he, and no one else, decide to step forward and take on the risk associated with becoming a whistleblower and then a fugitive? In Snowden, Rall delves into Snowden’s early life and work experience, his personality, and the larger issues of privacy, new surveillance technologies, and the recent history of government intrusion. Rall describes Snowden’s political vision and hopes for the future. In a way, the book tells two stories: Snowden’s and a larger one that describes all of us on the threshold of tremendous technological upheaval and political change. SEVEN STORIES

Rall is a nationally syndicated political cartoonist, opinion columnist, graphic novelist and occasional war correspondent. He is twice the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and a Pulitzer Prize finalist. His political cartoons can be seen regularly in the Dayton City Paper.
