Join us for a double book launch bash! We’ll be celebrating the release of:
Salt of the Nation by Matt Bloom: This is the story of Harry McBride, a disillusioned gravel plant worker who impulsively slugs the Republican presidential nominee during a campaign photo-op and instantly becomes America’s most famous fugitive and newest hero.
Redlined by Richard Wise: The year is 1974. Boston’s Jamaica Plain is a neighborhood under siege. The banks have redlined the neighborhood, causing the housing market to crash, wiping out local homeowner’s lifetime investments and opening the neighborhood to blockbusters and slumlords. Someone is systematically torching abandoned buildings and the charred body of Sandy Morgan, a dedicated young neighborhood organizer, has been found among the ashes. Why? Who stands to gain? Written by a former Alinsky-trained organizer and based on true events, Redlined tells the very human story of a dedicated activist and his young researcher who uncover a plot destined to destroy a vibrant neighborhood. Redlined exposes the unscrupulous actors who make big money off a community’s shattered dreams.
