Frances Moore Lappé Speaks at Benefit Lecture for Peacework Magazine
September 10, 2008

Each year, PeaceWork Magazine celebrates our founding editor, Pat
Farren, by sponsoring a talk or reading by a writer or writers who use
words as the medium for celebrating and promoting nonviolent social
change. Proceeds from the event help support the continued publication
of Peacework, and the Patricia Watson Activist Journalism Internship
for Young Writers of Color.

Frances Moore Lappé is the author or coauthor of sixteen books. Her
1971 three-million-copy bestseller Diet for a Small Planet continues
to awaken readers to the human-made causes of hunger and the power of
our everyday choices to create the world we want. Together, Lappé and
her daughter Anna Lappé lead the Cambridge-based Small Planet
Institute, a collaborative network for research and popular education
to bring democracy to life. With her daughter, she is also co-founder
of the Small Planet Fund, channeling resources to democratic social
movements worldwide. In September of 2007, the Institute's publishing
arm released Lappé's newest book, Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity,
& Courage in a World Gone Mad, reviewed in Peacework by Betty Zisk.
