Author Winslow Myers will present Living Beyond War, sharing his beliefs and commitment to end war, on Sunday, May 22, at 5 p.m. at the Unitarian-Universalist Society Chapel at 238 Main street in Vineyard Haven.
The organization called Beyond War has been working for 25 years to change thinking about war. During the Cold War, teams of high level scientists from the then Soviet Union and the U.S. wrote a book together about the dangers of accidental nuclear war.
Mr. Myers grew up on the coast of Maine and earned degrees from Princeton, Boston University and Queens College. He was a professional artist and art history teacher for 40 years. He has been volunteering for Beyond War since its inception in 1984 and has served on its board of directors since 2007. His book, Living Beyond War, aims to bring the provocative ideas of Beyond War into the post-9/11 world.
