Devil’s Tango: The Lessons of Fukushima
presented by
Cecile Pineda,a critically-acclaimed, award-winning writer and anti-nuclear activist.

On the second anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, Cecile Pineda, anti-nuclear activist and critically-acclaimed author, will tour the Great Lakes region March 10-20. The author of Devil’s Tango: How I Learned the Fukushima Step by Step, Cecile will give her stirring insight of the nuclear industry and update us on the consequences of the tragic event that began to unfold on March 11, 2011, with the meltdown of three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility. Devil’s Tango is an anguished dissection of the nuclear industry in which a crazy quilt of multiple voices, pieced together day-by- day, reflects Cecile’s attempt to come to terms with Fukushima’s catastrophic consequences to the planet.

Cecile Pineda’s novels have been critically acclaimed with Face winning the California Commonwealth Club’s Gold Medal – a record for first fiction — the Sue Kaufman Prize, and a national Book Award Nomination. Her picaresque novel, The Love Queen of the Amazon, written with a NEA Fiction Fellowship, was named a Notable Book of the Year by The New York Times.

Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
"Devil’s Tango" will be available for sale and can be signed by the author.

Sponsored by the Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom (U.S.), Integrated Learning & Community Partnership Office, and Environmental Studies.
