Manchester, N.H. (Oct. 16, 2006) – William Greider, noted author and journalist, will hold a three-part lecture series at Southern New Hampshire University beginning Friday, Oct. 20, at 6 p.m. in Robert Frost Hall’s Walker Auditorium. The series, which is free and open to the public, continues on Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. in Walker Auditorium and Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. in the Hospitality Center’s ballroom.

Greider said the format will not be a standard lecture on hard economic issues, but more a meditation on America, its present confusions and its possibilities. “I envision three lectures that draw upon past and present experience to talk about American society, the damaged culture and my own hopeful vision of how a different future can be made possible,” he said.

 Friday, Oct. 20, 6 p.m. – “Adolescent America:” Unfinished as a country, the U.S. is equipped with both promising and malignant qualities. Can we sort them out to achieve a maturity that makes use of our best parts and gets rid of the others?
 Friday, Nov. 17, 6 p.m. – The second lecture takes on the existing economic and political system more concretely and explains its confinements and failures.
 Friday, Dec. 15, 6 p.m. – The final lecture asks how America can find peace with the rest of the world.

Greider has worked for more than 40 years as a reporter for newspapers, magazines and television. He was authored many books including: “One World, Ready or Not: The Manic Logic of Global Capitalism” (1997), “Who Will Tell the People: The Betrayal of American Democracy” (1992) and “Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country” (1987).
