Finally our CounterPunch books are in! Hand delivered by editor Jeffrey St. Clair (our speaker this Thursday), CounterPunch’s AK Press specializes in well-researched, well-written books from America’s left. Some of the highlights: Red State Rebels, a collection of essays from activists living in so-called Red States (like Montana); Serpents in the Garden: Liasons with Culture & Sex (co-authored with Alex Cockburn); Waiting for Lightning to Strike: The Fundamentals of Black Politics by Kevin Alexander Gray; and St. Clair’s on-the-ground conservation reporting in Born Under a Bad Sky and Been Brown So Long It Looked Like Green to Me.
CounterPunch publishes several Livingston writers as well, including John Holt’s Yellowstone Drift (with an introduction by Doug Peacock), and Andrea Peacock’s Wasting Libby: The True Story of How the WR Grace Corporation Left a Montana Town to Die (and Got Away With It).
In his talk, St. Clair will articulate a vision for U.S. radicals in the context of climate change, terror wars, and the most divisive electoral season in living memory. If you care at all about politics, you won’t want to miss this. Thursday, September 1 at 7 p.m. right here at the book store, 115 E. Callender.
