    Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich in Library Event

    Millions of Americans have lost confidence in our political and economic system. With the characteristic clarity and passion that has made him a central civil voice, Robert B. Reich shows how wealth and power have interacted to install an elite oligarchy, eviscerate the middle class, and undermine democracy.

    Join the Nashua Public and Newton Free Libraries on Thursday, February 11, at 7 p.m. for a conversation with Mr. Reich on his latest book, “The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It.” Christopher Lydon, host of the original podcast, “Open Source,” heard in Boston on WBUR, will moderate.

He has written 18 books and is a founding editor of American Prospect, founder of Inequality Media, a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a co-creator of award-winning documentaries.
