From Russ:


Sydney Schanberg (Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, author, of “Killing Fields” fame) and David Margolick (author and contributing editor to Vanity Fair and Newsweek, ex NY Times) introduce

Russ Baker and a discussion of his explosive new book, Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government, and the Hidden History of the Past Fifty Years. Baker’s work has been praised by Gore Vidal-who called it one of the most important books of the decade-as well as by Dan Rather and Bill Moyers. Full of stunning major revelations, Family of Secrets will change the way you view power in America.

With Karl Rove’s and Laura Bush’s books out recently, and George W. Bush’s own “Decision Points” due out with much fanfare in November, this is a perfect time to learn (and not from Karl, Laura or George) what really happened in this country the past eight years. Learn how the staggering Bush epoch evolved from unexamined occurrences over the past half century, and how it is still influencing White House policy and wreaking havoc today. Learn the back story to current controversies, from the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster to the continuing hostilities in the Middle East. Learn about CIA-financial-military networks and their ability to shape presidencies.

The talk will be followed by a question and answer session and then a signing.

Where: New York University Bookstore in its brand new location, 726 Broadway at Waverly, just below Astor Place. Easy access to most subway lines.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
