A NIGHT WITH GREG PALAST
Kick-off of Greg's book tour for ARMED MADNESS

Greg Palast's The Best Democracy Money Can Buy topped the New York Times bestseller list for seven months. The winner of the George Orwell Courage in Journalism prize for his reports for BBC Television and Harper's, Guerilla News Network's reporter of the year, Palast takes readers on his new global tour, from Baghdad to New Orleans, from Osama's cave to the Pentagon's back rooms, exposing official mendacity and corporate piggery. Here's the latest of what Britain’s Guardian calls, “investigations up there with Woodward and Bernstein – and a lot funnier.” In ARMED MADHOUSE: Who’s Afraid of Osama Wolf?, China Floats, Bush Sinks, The Scheme to Steal ’08, No Child’s Behind Left, and Other Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Class Wars Palast, former racketeering investigator, gives you the facts you don't get from the Powers That Be, as brutal as they are funny.

Admission for 7:30 PM event: $12-15.00 sliding scale.

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM: New College Media Studies MA Program - Information Session. Come by between 5:30 and 6:30 PM to learn about New College's Media Studies graduate program. Visit: http://www.newcollege.edu/media_studies/ .
