TED RALL

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2; 7 PM

Political cartoonist and graphic journalist TED RALL will introduce his new book, After We Kill You, We Will Welcome You Back As Honored Guests. Ted has been to Afghanistan twice, first in the wake of 9/11 and then ten years later. Neither time was he “safely” embedded with the U.S. forces, but instead went as an independent journalist seeking to uncover the truth of what was happening in Afghanistan. He was often in dangerous, life-threatening situations as he filed daily reports via satellite. The book is a mix of travelogue, photography, and comics as he portrays the realities of what really happened when America went to war. HILL AND WANG

Ted Rall is the author and illustrator of many graphic novels and books of political criticism and travel writing, including The Year of Loving Dangerously, Silk Road to Ruin: Is Central Asia the New Middle East?, and The Book of Obama: How We Went from Hope and Change to the Age of Revolt. His political cartoons are nationally syndicated and are seen locally in the Dayton City Paper. He is originally from Kettering.
