Paul K. Chappell: Peace Literacy Speaking Tour

November 12 @ 12:00 pm - November 15 @ 6:00 pm

Free

Paul K. Chappell will be coming to Western Mass the week of Veteran’s Day (Nov. 12-15th) to speak about his newest book, Soldiers Of Peace and the importance of providing Peace Literacy in our schools.

Paul K. Chappell is an international peace educator and serves as the Peace Leadership Director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. He graduated from West Point, was deployed to Iraq, and left active duty as a Captain. He is the author of the seven-book Road to Peace series about ending war, waging peace, the art of living, and our shared humanity. The first six published books in this series are Will War Ever End?, The End of War, Peaceful Revolution, The Art of Waging Peace, The Cosmic Ocean, and Soldiers of Peace. Lecturing across the United States and internationally, he also teaches courses and workshops on peace leadership and peace literacy.

Chappell grew up in Alabama, the son of a half-black and half-white father who fought in the Korean and Vietnam wars, and a Korean mother. Having grown up in a violent household, Chappell has forged a new understanding of war and peace, rage and trauma, and vision, purpose, and hope. His websites are www.paulkchappell.com and www.peaceliteracy.org

Paul is scheduled to speak at Greenfield Community College on Wed, Nov 7th at noon. More details to come.
