Gwynne Dyer
Crawling from the Wreckage
October 25, 2010 @ 7:30pm | $25/$22
Capilano University Theatre
Dyer’s latest book traces the world’s halting emergence from the dark tunnel of the past decade, a time marked by exaggerated fears of terrorism, futile and unnecessary wars in the Middle East, neglect of climate change and financial near-collapse. Mining the events of recent history, Dyer contextualizes the recent past and anticipates what the future might have in store.
