Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco Signing for Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt
Admission: Free to the public
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges and American Book Award-winning cartoonist Joe Sacco present a searing portrait of an American underclass in crisis. Reporting from the coal fields of West Virginia, from Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, from undocumented farm worker colonies in California, and from Camden, New Jersey, the poorest city in the nation, Hedges and Sacco warn of a bleak near future — where cities and states fall easily into bankruptcy, neofeudalism reigns, and the nation's working and middle classes are decimated. A shocking report from the frontlines of poverty in America, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt is a clarion call for reform.
