The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner

Petaluma - When former presidential advisor Daniel Ellsberg famously took the top-secret Pentagon Papers, he also took with him a chilling cache of documents related to America’s nuclear program in the 1960s. The Doomsday Machine reveals for the first time the contents of those documents and makes clear their shocking relevance for today. Framed as a memoir, this gripping exposé reads like a thriller with cloak-and-dagger intrigue, placing Ellsberg back in his natural role as whistle-blower.

Ellsberg will be joined in conversation by American actor, author, director and screenwriter Peter Coyote. Coyote was the chairman of the California Arts Council from 1975 to 1983. In 1993 he was awarded a Pushcart Prize for “Carla’s Story,” published in Zyzzyva. He has written two memoirs of his life, Sleeping Where I Fall and The Rainman's Third Cure: An Irregular Education.

This series is a fundraiser for Literacyworks Center, a project that assists underserved, low-income, low-literacy adult students and their families with maneuvering and solving the educational, logistical and personal challenges they face to stay in school or succeed at work.
