Amy Goodman to speak in Portland, Bangor and Bar Harbor this weekend

Amy Goodman, host and executive producer of the award-winning, independent daily news program, Democracy Now!, has three speaking engagements planned this weekend across Maine.

Goodman will be speaking in Portland at 2 pm on Saturday, May 14, at Portland High School’s Ford Auditorium, at 7 pm that evening at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Bangor at 120 Park Street and then on Sunday at 11:00 am at the Thomas S. Gates, Jr. Community Center at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor.

The talks are part of a national book tour, with Goodman, her journalist brother, David Goodman, and her co-host and co-author Denis Moynihan promoting Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America, a collection of stories of “the whistleblowers, the organizers, and the protesters, among others, who have brought about extraordinary change.”

Goodman is being hosted by CTN and WMPG in Portland and WERU in Bangor. More information about each of the events can be found here: Portland, Bangor, Bar Harbor.

Democracy Now! is the largest public media collaboration in the US, broadcasting on over 1,400 public television and radio stations around the world and with millions more viewers and listeners accessing it online.
