"The Life of a Leader"

Ford Hall Forum presents a look at Israeli Prime Minister Sharon

6:30 - 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, 2011
C. Walsh Theatre
55 Temple St., Boston

The Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University presents Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s youngest son, Gilad Sharon, in a discussion on his father’s vast archives. From 2001 until his stroke in 2006, Ariel Sharon walked a fine line between waging war on Israel’s enemies and accommodating its allies, all while grappling with suicide bombings, the Iraq War, and Iran’s nuclear program.

Gilad Sharon gives moderator Wendy Ballinger, treasurer of the Ford Hall Forum Board, a rare glimpse into his father’s private discussions with major heads of state as well as an illuminating analysis of this global leader’s unique views.

Gilad Sharon will be signing and selling copies of his book, Sharon: The Life of a Leader, at the end of the event.

Admission is free and open to all.
