What does it take to inspire citizens to take action on the big issues that concern them most? Paul Loeb has spent more than thirty years researching and writing about citizen responsibility and empowerment--asking what makes some people choose lives of social commitment, while others abstain. Loeb will speak on Monday, September 20 at 7 p.m. in Textor 102. A book sale and signing will follow the lecture.

Loeb's first book, Nuclear Culture, explored the daily world of atomic weapons workers in Hanford, Washington. Hope in Hard Times examined the lives and visions of ordinary Americans involved in grass roots peace activism. Generation at the Crossroads: Apathy and Action on the American Campus explored the values and choices of American college students. Soul of a Citizen: Living with Conviction in a Cynical Time looks at what it takes to lead lives of social commitment despite all the obstacles. The Impossible Will Take a Little While, was named the #3 political book of that year by the History Channel and the American Book Association, and won the Nautilus Award for best social change book of the year.
