    Ralph Nader, legendary consumer advocate and author of Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns, will be at Silas Bronson Library in Waterbury, 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.

    Wednesday, June 5th @ 7:00pm
    Barnes & Noble Union Square
    33 East 17th Street
    New York, NY

     

    Join Ralph Nader at the Barnes & Noble Union Square Store as he reads and discusses his new book of columns, Told You So. 

    For the past forty-five years Ralph Nader has challenged corporations, government agencies, and institutions to be more accountable to the public. In 1965, Unsafe at Any Speed changed the face of the automobile industry and made Ralph Nader a household name. As a result of his efforts, cars have more safety features. His lobbying and writing on the food industry insured that the food we buy is required to pass strict guidelines before reaching the consumer. His new collection Told You So covers topics from big corporations, environmental pollution, commercialism, civil rights, and more.
