19th Avenue at Winston Drive,
JOIN JOHN PERRY BARLOW AND AUTHOR RUSS BAKER
With Karl Rove's and Laura Bush's books out recently, and George W. Bush's own "Decision Points" due out with much fanfare in November, this is a perfect time to learn (and not from Karl, Laura or George) what really happened in this country the past eight years. Learn how the staggering Bush epoch evolved from unexamined occurrences over the past half century, and how it is still influencing White House policy today. Learn the back story to current controversies, from the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster to the continuing hostilities in the Middle East. Learn about CIA-financial-military networks and their ability to shape presidencies.
Please join award-winning investigative journalist and author Russ Baker for a talk, reading and signing of his book Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America's Invisible Government, and the Hidden History of the Past Fifty Years. Baker's work has been praised by Gore Vidal, who called it one of the most important books of the decade, as well as by Dan Rather and Bill Moyers. Full of stunning major revelations, Family of Secrets will change the way you view power in America. Russ will be introduced by John Perry Barlow, Grateful Dead lyricist, poet and Internet pioneer. The talk will be followed by an extended question and answer session and then a signing.
