Pulitzer Prize winner to speak at UCC Sunday

NORWICH – Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, author and war correspondent Chris Hedges will speak at the United Church of Christ (UCC) Sunday to discuss themes from his latest book – “Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle.”



The program is the second in what the local church hopes to make an annual series, bringing national speakers to Norwich to address a wide variety of issues, according to Reverend Joseph Connolly, pastor and teacher at UCC.

Also the author of the best-selling “War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning” – 2002 finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction – Hedges’ latest offering “charts the dramatic and disturbing rise of a post-literate society that craves fantasy, ecstasy and illusion,” according to publisher Knopf Canada.
