LAVA Center to host ‘Fish Discover Water Last’ reading
The LAVA Center at 324 Main St. will host the second in-person presentation of the newly published work “Fish Discover Water Last: Richard L. Grossman on corporations, democracy, and us” on Wednesday, June 22, from 7 to 8 p.m.
Richard Grossman (1943-2011) was a researcher, organizer and lecturer-writer on the growth and powers of corporations, citizen movements and more. He likened the experience of fish in water to that of Americans going about their daily lives without awareness of the corporate power and culture that permeate society and government. The book includes years of Grossman’s talks, compiled and edited by Anna Gyorgy, and published by Paul Richmond of Human Error Press.
The book will be available for $15 each, $25 for two and $50 for five. Sales will benefit The LAVA Center and the Traprock Center for Peace and Justice.
