Counterblasts and Intern Nation launch tonight in Brooklyn

I will be attending the launch this evening at the Verso Books loft in Brooklyn of Verso’s Counterblasts series, of which my The Imperial Messenger: Thomas Friedman at Work is a component. Derrick O’Keefe, author of Michael Ignatieff: The Lesser Evil? and Jade Lindgaard, co-author with Xavier de la Porte of The Impostor: BHL in Wonderland, will be in attendance, as well.

The launch will also mark the release in paperback of Ross Perlin’s Intern Nation and the start of Left Forum 2012, being held this weekend at Pace University.

Tomorrow (March 17), Verso’s Andy Hsiao will be chairing a Left Forum panel entitled Counterblasts: Challenging “star” public intellectuals who defend Empire and Capital. I won’t be able to make it, but O’Keefe and Lindgaard will be speaking on the panel along with Joel Whitney of Guernica Magazine, a valuable ally in the anti-Friedman campaign.
