Canadian Dimension magazine hosting author and muckraker Chris Hedges in Toronto, Sept 20

Canadian Dimension magazine is presenting an evening with author and muckraker Chris Hedges on Friday, Sept 20, 7:30 p.m. at Bloor United Church in Toronto. Hedges is to be introduced by Simon Black and CAW economist Jim Stanford. The cost is $20. It is part of a series of events across the country -- another, probably for Montreal, is soon to be announced. Tickets available online

Hedges is a regular columnist on the progressive site Truthdig and had an extensive career as a foreign correspondent for, among other things, the New York Times, where he was part of the team of reporters who were awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for coverage of global terrorism. (He left the Times after being issued a formal reprimand for denouncing the Bush administration's invasion of Iraq.) He's a senior fellow at the Nation Institute in New York and has written 12 books, including Death of the Liberal Class (2010) and Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt (2012)
