National security and government snooping is the subject of a talk at 4 pm. Sunday at the Larchmont Public Library.
Karen Greenberg, director of the Center on National Security at Fordham Law School and a permanent member of the Council on Foreign Relations, will discuss the government's role in national security and talk about the debate over national security.
She is the author of The Least Worst Place: Guantanamo's First 100 Days, which was selected as one of the best books of 2009 by the Washington Post.
Organizers said Greenberg is a noted expert on national security, terrorism and civil liberties. She is also co-editor of The Enemy Combatant Papers: American Justice, the Courts and the War on Terror and The Torture Papers: The Road to Aub Ghraib.
Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Nation and Mother Jones.
The free event is part of the Sunday Series sponsored by the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library. It will be held in the Village Center, behind the library, 121 Larchmont Ave. Refreshments begin at 3:30 p.m.
