Award-winning Director Michael Moore to Speak October 4th
Moore is also a best-selling nonfiction author. His latest book, Here Comes Trouble, was
released this month. His books have spent weeks on The New York Times hardcover non-
fiction list. Stupid White Men and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation was awarded
Britain’s top book honor, British Book of the Year, the first time the award has been bestowed
on an American author. Moore’s other books include Dude, Where’s My Country? Downsize
This! Random Threats from an Unarmed American, and Adventures in a TV Nation, which he
co-wrote with his wife Kathleen Glynn. He also authored the critically acclaimed Will They Ever
Trust Us Again: Letters from the War Zone, a compilation of heartbreaking and inspiring letters
Moore has received from soldiers in Iraq and from their families back home.

Moore was born in Flint, Mich., and at 18, was the youngest person ever elected to public office
in the state of Michigan. Moore won an Academy Award for Bowling for Columbine and an
Emmy Award for his series TV Nation. He also directed the 2007 documentary Sicko that he
described as “a comedy about 45 million people with no health care in the richest country on
earth.” In 2008 he released Slacker Uprising, the first feature length film to be released online,
completely free. The film is a collection of footage from his tour of college campuses during the
fall of 2004. Cameras followed him to 62 cities as he urged young people to vote for presidential
candidate John Kerry.
