I was wondering if any of you are attending or would want to go see Barbara Ehrenreich speak at Willamette University in Salem on Thursday Oct. 18th at 8pm??
My husband and I would like to go but our car just broke so we don't have a way to get down there and I have to be at work the next day.
If anyone is going and would like to get paid for having company, please let me know!! (I'll pay for some gas and your ticket)
If you are interested in what I am talking about, here is a recent interview discussing her new book on collective joy. and an older interview from '97 about the origins of the passion for war. She is also known for her work on poor and middle class work as well as white color corporate workers. She's also a radical feminist and an all around great thinker. She's basically my hero.
Barbara Ehrenreich, author most recently of Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy on MEDIA MATTERS WITH BOB MCCHESNEY.
DR. BARBARA EHRENREICH Political Essayist, Social Critic, Activist and Novelist. Author: "Blood Rites - Origins and History of the Passions of War" Originally aired" 11-10-97 on CONVERSATIONS WITH HAROLD HUDSON CHANNER
