July 13, 2013Ralph Nader Book Tour Saturday, July 13 @ 1:00pm Barnes & Noble 1100 Albany Turnpike #305 Canton, CT
Join Ralph Nader at the Barnes & Noble in Canton, CT, 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.
Ralph will be available for Q&A and book signings after the event. To learn more about the event, visit the Barnes & Noble event page.
