NOAM CHOMSKY is widely regarded as the most influential thinker of our time, but never before has he devoted a major book to one topic, income inequality. Requiem for the American Dream is not an essay collection but an entire work of some 70,000 words based on four years of interviews with Chomsky by the editors.
CHOMSKY comes to the First Parish Church in Cambridge to speak with AMY GOODMAN in an event sponsored by Harvard Book Store.
Requiem for the American Dream is being produced in tandem with the film of the same name that was recently released in selected theaters to rave reviews and standing ovations and will be on Netflix and touring colleges prior to the book’s release.
$5 tickets for this event go on sale April 4 at 9am
