Puffin Interview Series with Leader Joe Chuman: ‘This Red Land’ with Arthur Dobrin (Online)

April 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Our friends at the Puffin Cultural Forum have announced the Puffin Interview Series with our own Leader Dr. Joe Chuman!

On the first Sunday of every month Dr. Chuman will delve into and explore the work of renowned authors through meaningful dialogue in an intimate interview format, all streamed live on Youtube. There will be an opportunity for audiences to ask their own questions during a Q&A session.

This month: Dr. Arthur Dobrin

The Puffin Interview Series holds their first in-person interview with our very own Dr. Joe Chuman and Dr. Arthur Dobrin, Leader Emeritus of the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island and the author of This Red Land, a work that captures two worlds: Kenya and in the United States of America. The book deals with many of the issues affecting these two countries in the 1980’s and 1990’s. There is Sungusungu in Kisii, Junius George’s murder trial and death. The tribal killings in Kenya in 1992, witchcraft as presented in Kisii, the Tomkins park riot in which Kwamboka is involved in and many more events are real. The title spurs interest in political and social states both in Kenya and the United States of America in the 80’s and 90’s.
