Wars make news all the time, but how do you create a peace? How do you know when a war--one that looks virtually inevitable--is actually avoided? That's the subject of Clevelander Harvey Pekar's new book, Macedonia. You're invited to join us for a conversation with Pekar, the graphic author of American Splendor fame, and his co-author Heather Roberson. Roberson is an expert in peace studies and war prevention. We'll talk about war and how it can be stopped before it starts, their unique collaboration, and whatever else is on your mind. Also, as you may have heard, StoryCorps is coming to town. We'll hear what it's all about from StoryCorps founder David Isay. Be sure to join us Wednesday morning at nine.
