Engaged and outraged: Globe highlights amazing autobiography of my friend Ben Swankey, 94
Today’s Globe features a wonderful profile of my old friend Ben Swankey, 94, whose autobiography I edited and produced last year. Tom Hawthorne’s article — see the a longer version here on Tom’s blog — traces the main events of Ben’s life and his determination to keep on fighting for peace, justice and a better world. You can order Ben’s book from Trafford Publishing. That’s me, right, with Ben at the June book launch for What’s New: memoirs of a socialist idealist.
