Professor of History and Coordinator of Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies at Salem State University, Aviva Chomsky is a prolific speaker and author.

She will speak on this topic in general and include how it applies to the situation in Nicaragua. Copies of the book are available at Brookline Booksmith in Coolidge Corner or Beacon Press.
