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.
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.
For more information on the party tonight see here.
