Rockland — Kate Braestrup will speak about war and peace and the paradigm shift that she sees happening in the way we fight wars, as evidenced by the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan Thursday, March 7, at 6:30 p.m. in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St.. Her talk is titled The World’s Policeman? — Iraq, Afghanistan and the next just war.

Braestrup, who lives in Lincolnville, is a community minister; serves as chaplain to the Maine Warden Service; and is the author of “Here If You Need Me,” “Marriage and Other Acts of Charity” and “Beginner’s Grace: Bringing Prayer to Life.” As chaplain to the Maine Warden service, responsible for assisting families who loved ones are missing, Braestrup said a lot of the work she does is around death: “I’ve been on the receiving end of the kind of care that I am offering.”

The free program is co-sponsored with the Camden Conference Community Events Series. Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made with 48 hours notice by calling the library at 594-0310.
