Free Library of Philadelphia - Vincent Feldman - City Abandoned: Charting the Loss of Civic Institutions in Philadelphia
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Saturday, April 19 at 4pm
City Abandoned: Charting the Loss of Civic Institutions in Philadelphia Vincent Feldman Lifelong Philadelphia resident Vincent Feldman has spent the last three decades photographing the city’s architectural character. As some of our most significant structures began to crumble, Feldman’s photos increasingly focused on the conflicts and difficulties of historical preservation. A Master Lecturer in photography at the University of the Arts and recipient of a 2001 Pew Fellowship, Feldman has displayed his work at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and sold his work to patrons across the world. More than a photo collection, City Abandoned makes a passionate argument for preservation and renovation of some of Philadelphia’s most important but neglected buildings.

Free Library of Philadelphia - Doug Fine - Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Cannabis Economy
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Saturday, April 19 at 7:30pm
Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Cannabis Economy Doug Fine Investigative journalist and muckraking author of the “eye-opening and persuasive” (The New York Times Book Review) best-seller Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution, Doug Fine peeks into dank corners to find the straight dope on the burgeoning American hemp industry. In Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Cannabis Economy, Fine takes a road trip across North America to investigate the misunderstood plant’s pioneering 21st century uses—from powering cars to insulating houses to healing damaged farmland—and posits that its decriminalization would bring in more taxable income than its smokable cousin. Fine is also the author of Farewell, My Subaru: An Epic Adventure in Local Living and Not Really an Alaskan Mountain Man. Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 (between 19th and 20th Streets on the Parkway) This is a FREE event; no tickets or reservations are required.

A Reading with Kelly Cogswell
Giovanni's Room, Thursday, April 24 at 5:30pm
Join us as activist and journalist Kelly Cogswell gives a reading from her new memoir, Eating Fire: My Life as a Lesbian Avenger.

At once streetwise and wistful, "Eating Fire" is a witty and urgent coming-of-age memoir spanning two decades, from the Culture War of the early 1990s to the War on Terror. Cogswell's story is an engaging blend of picaresque adventure, how-to activist handbook, and rigorous inquiry into questions of identity, resistance, and citizenship. It is also a compelling, personal recollection of friendships and fallings-out and of finding true love--several times over. After the Lesbian Avengers imploded, Cogswell describes how she became a pioneering citizen journalist, cofounding the "Gully" online magazine with the groundbreaking goal of offering "queer views on everything." The first in-depth account of the influential Lesbian Avengers, "Eating Fire" reveals the group's relationship to the queer art and activist scene in early '90s New York and establishes the media-savvy Avengers as an important precursor to groups such as Occupy Wall Street and La Barbe, in France. A rare insider's look at the process and perils of street activism, Kelly Cogswell's memoir is an uncompromising and ultimately empowering story of creative resistance against hatred and injustice.

Free Library of Philadelphia - Amartya Sen - An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Thursday, April 24 at 7:30pm
An uncertain glory: India and its Contradictions Amartya Sen Esteemed economist Amartya Sen received the Nobel Prize for his work on social choice theory, welfare economics, development economics, moral and political philosophy, and the economics of peace and war. With an impeccable record of advocacy for tolerance, pluralism, and harmony, he is credited with reintroducing ethics into economic discourse. A Professor at Harvard, Dr. Sen is the recipient of many honors, including the Bharat Ratna—the highest honor awarded by the President of India; the Eisenhower Medal; the French Legion of Honor; and the National Humanities Medal. His new book is “an urgent, passionate, political work” (New York Times Book Review), coauthored with longtime collaborator Jean Drèze, that makes clear the case that India—despite rapid economic growth—cannot move forward without making a significant investment in the essential needs of the people. Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 (between 19th and 20th Streets on the Parkway) This is a TICKETED event; $15 General Admission, $7 Students.

Unstoppable: The Emerging Right Left Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State Ralph Nader Ralph Nader “singlehandedly sparked a new era of citizen-driven political and consumer activism (Publishers Weekly) and is largely responsible for major federal consumer protection laws such as the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Freedom of Information Act. His scathing critique of the American auto industry, Unsafe at Any Speed, was instrumental in the passage of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Nader has written a score of popular books and has been a five-time third-party Presidential candidate. His new book calls for bipartisan grassroots activism in the face of corporate influence in American politics.
