At the August 2 Media Mixer in San Rafael filmmaker and author Barbara McVeigh, member of BAIPA as well as Community Media Center of Marin (CMCM), will read from her memoir, Redemption, How Ronald Reagan Nearly Ruined My Life.
Her book recounts the personal family story about how after 35 years of anger toward her father for striking against President Ronald Reagan in the 1981 PATCO strike, an act that labeled her father a federal criminal, she’s learned why her father and the 13,000 union members of 1981 should be considered heroes in America today.
Barbara will also show 30 minutes of the film The Road Not Taken by Swiss filmmakers Christina Hemauer and Roman Keller and talk about President Jimmy Carter’s wisdom, as we now understand his vision on energy policies and environmental responsibility at the most critical time of our global humanity. And she will talk about the methods of propaganda used by the so-called “hero” of the Republican Party, who led our country, if not planet, to a very dark road.
Ronald Reagan didn’t just nearly ruin her life . . . he’s nearly ruined all of our lives.
The mixer is August 2, from 7 to 8:30 pm, at 819 A Street in San Rafael. Seating is limited, so please make a reservation at [email protected] with your name and email.
