JOIN US in New York City for Betty Reardon’s 90th Birthday Celebration and launch of “Exploring Betty A. Reardon’s Perspective on Peace Education: Looking Back, Looking Forward,” edited by Dale Snauwaert, with contributions from members of the IIPE network.

The book launch will be an interactive celebration of the book, featuring an international roster of colleagues who have written about the legacy of Betty’s work in peace education and how her contributions have inspired them to advance the theory and practice of peace education around the world. The book celebration is a free event. Advance RSVP’s are required.

The launch will be followed by supper and entertainment provided by some of Betty’s former students. Bring your dancing shoes and come prepared to take a spin on the dancefloor with Betty!

Although this is a birthday party, Betty requests that there be no gifts other than contributions to the ongoing fundraising campaign.

Supper and entertainment is a ticketed event: $50 per person includes meal and a complimentary drink. Please first RSVP for the supper and book launch below. We will send a link to purchase supper tickets with your RSVP confirmation. You can also purchase supper tickets directly here. The deadline to purchase supper tickets is June 1.
