Greg Palast in town

Greg Palast has a new book out: Vulture's Picnic: In Pursuit of Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates and High-Finance Predators. So, it's time for a book tour, and it coincides nicely with KPFT's "Quiet Campaign" fund drive. It could be time to get out of the house.

About the Author: Greg Palast is an investigative reporter and author of the New York Times and international bestsellers The Best Democracy Money Can’t Buy and Armed Madhouse. He is best known as the reporter who uncovered how Katrina Harris purged thousands of African-Americans from the Florida voter rolls in the 2000 Presidential Election. The Guardian called him “The best investigative reporter of our time and the funniest.” He is the Patron of the University Philosophical Society at Trinity College, Dublin, an honor previously help by Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde.

About the Book: Vultures' Picnic is pulp nonfiction at its best. It's an unbelievable investigation into the corrupt heart of Big Oil, and behind it, Bigger Finance, exposing once and for all the corporate vultures that feed on the weak and poison our planet.
