Ralph Nader, the legendary consumer advocate and author of Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns, will be at Barnes and Noble in Canton, CT for a book talk, Q&A, and signing.
The column is the most natural literary form for a citizen’s advocate, and Ralph Nader may be its most robust and forceful practitioner. Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns presents a panoramic portrait of the problems confronting our society and provides examples of the many actions an organized citizenry could and should take to create a more just and environmentally sustainable world. Drawing on decades of experience, Nader’s columns document the consequences of concentrated corporate power; threats to our food, water and air; the corrosive effect of commercialism on our children; the dismantling of worker rights; and the attacks on our civil rights and civil liberties. Nader also offers concrete suggestions to spark citizen action and achieve social change.
“What sets Ralph Nader apart is that he has moved beyond social criticism to effective political action.”—The New York Times
