A reception and book signing will follow the talk.

Dear, who was described by Archbishop Desmond Tutu as “the embodiment of a peacemaker” when Tutu nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2008, has more than 30 years of organizing, promoting and participating in efforts to eliminate war and develop paths to justice, event organizers said.
