Author and Peacemaker Rosalie Riegle to Speak at Canisius

The campus community will be inspired and its hope renewed following a visit from professor, author and oral historian Rosalie Riegle, on Thursday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m. in the Montante Cultural Center.  Riegle will be joined by non-violent civil resisters, including Elliott Adams, a veteran for peace, and local members of the Hancock 31.  The event is free and open to the public (donations will graciously be accepted).

Riegle is a professor emerita of English at Saginaw Valley State University, University Center, MI, where she taught humanities, composition and English literature.  She is also the author of two books: Doing Time for Peace: Resistance, Family and Community is a collection of oral histories from more than 75 peacemakers who describe how they say no to war by engaging in civil disobedience and paying the consequences in jail or prison.  Crossing the Line: Nonviolent Resisters Speak Out for Peace gives a voice to the often neglected social history of peacemakers and provides provocative stories of their actions, trials and imprisonments.

For more information on Rosalie Riegle’s lecture, contact Erin Robinson, PhD, at or at Ext. 2748.
