Etan Thomas with Anthony at Politics and Prose

Special report from Dave Zirin:

This past Monday at Politics & Prose bookstore in Washington, DC, there was an exciting and unique stop in the End the War tour. Anthony Arnove spoke with Washington Wizards Power Forward Etan Thomas. Thomas is the author of a book of poetry entitled More Than an Athlete (Black Moore Press, 2005) and he read his antiwar works for a rapt, packed audience. Thomas made national headlines last September when he spoke at the national antiwar march in Washington, DC. The two authors, on the surface very different, complemented each other beautifully. If people have doubts about the power of this reading, check it out this weekend on C-SPAN2 Book TV.

Scheduled twice for this weekend. Saturday at 11pm ET and Sunday at 4pm ET.



Ending the War in Iraq
Anthony Arnove and Etan Thomas

Description: Etan Thomas and Anthony Arnove talk about the Iraq War and the politics of the Bush administration. Mr. Thomas, who plays center for the Washington Wizards basketball team, is the author of a book of political poetry titled More Than an Athlete. During the event he recites two of his poems from the book—one about conservative politics and another about the Bush administration's justification for the invasion of Iraq. Anthony Arnove, author of Iraq: The Logic of Withdrawal, explains why he thinks the best solution for Iraq is a complete and immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops from the country. This event was hosted by Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, DC. Both authors answer questions from the audience following their remarks.
