Moving Violations, paraplegic journalist John Hockenberry‘s account of covering the world from a wheelchair, is a deeply ambivalent book. On the one hand, the ABC reporter indicts a callous society that often refuses to lend a hand to those who could use it. On the other, Moving Violations reads like a libertarian manifesto, the proud tale of a handicapped person who never asked for, needed, or wanted special treatment. Either way, Hockenberry is a belligerent, entertaining writer, and he’s got a truckload of good stories to tell. He speaks at 6 p.m. at the Museum of American History’s Carmichael Auditorium, 14th & Constitution Ave. NW. $13. For reservations call (202) 357-3030. (David Plotz)
