Book discussion and signing with Eric Chester

October 11, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Book discussion and signing with Eric Chester, author of The Wobblies in Their Heyday paperback edition just released by Levellers Press). This book argues that the federal government waged all-out war against the IWW because of the effectiveness of its organizing in strategic industries. “Eric Chester’s book gives us a much-needed reminder of the government-backed destruction of the most radical working-class organization in U.S. history―an organization whose class-wide organizing across lines of occupation, race, and gender is a potent perspective for the renewed class struggle today.” (Loren Goldner, Coeditor, Insurgent Notes)  Cosponsored by Bindlestiff Books and Wooden Shoe Books
