12/5: Reykjavik Reading to Highlight CNS 20th Anniversary Celebration
December 1, 2009
At a Reykjavik, Iceland summit meeting in 1986, American and Soviet leaders Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev came within hours of concluding an agreement aimed at eliminating the threat of nuclear weapons for all time.
Three years later, a research center with similar objectives – the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies – was founded at the Monterey Institute of International Studies.
This Saturday, these two threads of history will intersect once more, as the organization now known as the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) celebrates its 20th anniversary with a reading of Reykjavik, a new play by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Rhodes that highlights the drama of the moment in 1986 when the era’s two superpowers nearly agreed to eliminate their entire nuclear arsenals. The reading will take place from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Irvine Auditorium in the McCone Building at 499 Pierce Street in Monterey.
The December 5 reading of Reykjavik is free and open to the public; seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, contact the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at 831.647.4154.
