UPDATED 7/24/10 – Barbara Ehrenreich will join Thomas Frank for this special event!
Barbara Ehrenreich and Thomas Frank will speak and sign books (including copies of Franks recently-revived Baffler magazine) on Wednesday, July 28, at Borders Park Avenue, 461 Park Avenue (at 57th Street) in New York City.
The title of the forum is: “What’s the Matter with Kansas? six years later – the backlash in hard times.”
Thomas will reflect on how times have changed – and how they haven’t – since his highly influential best-seller debuted in 2004. Barbara Ehrenreich, whose books, from “Fear of Falling” to “Nickel and Dimed,” to name just a few, have been tremendously influential, will also speak.
Of course, this event is in celebration of the opening of the movie “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” in New York City on Friday, July 30 at the Producers Club IndieHouse Cinema, 358 W. 44th Street in mid-town Manhattan.
Director Joe Winston will also be in attendance, and offer a brief sneak preview of the upcoming movie and give away free passes to a lucky few from the audience!
