Why America needs a new kind of labor movement

National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and labor lawyer Thomas Geoghegan discusses his new book "Only One Thing Can Save Us" on Wednesday, April 8, at 7 p.m., in the first floor community meeting room at the Evanston Public Library.

A "public policy" book that is compulsively readable, Geoghegan's latest argues that even as organized labor seems to be crumbling, a revived–but different–labor movement is more relevant than ever in our increasingly unequal society. With commentary both acerbic and witty, the book offers unparalleled insight into the real dynamics (and human experience) of working in America today. Geoghegan will take questions and also sign copies of his book which will be available to purchase courtesy of the Book Stall.
