When NSA contractor Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the U.S. government two years ago, he changed the state of privacy, technology, and security. What motivated him to leak top-secret documents and be labeled as a traitor? Political cartoonist (and cultural commentator extraordinaire) Ted Rall’s Snowden attempts to answer that question. The illustrator of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits, Rall’s latest work chronicles Snowden’s early life and career in what Noam Chomsky calls a “dramatic, thoughtful and very accessible account.” In addition to discussing these underlying motivations, Rall will explore the meaning of courage–and what it takes to act when all eyes are watching. He’ll appear in conversation with Paul Constant, The Seattle Review of Books co-founder.
