The Wrecking Crew
Book event and signing with author Thomas Frank, featuring special guest David Donnelly from Public Campaign Action Fund.
Eight years of calamitous conservative government has come and gone. Or has it? The damage left by right-wing hacks at the highest levels of our government going back decades still hobbles us today. And the network of special interest lobbyists embedded in the Washington establishment continues to thwart public demands for real change.
How we understand what we are up against? Thomas Frank's latest book, "The Wrecking Crew," is now updated and out in paperback. To celebrate, on Thursday, October 1, Frank came to the scene of the crime—Washington —to detail how conservatives deliberately destroyed the underpinning of effective government, and how their efforts are stifling us today.
