This week's topic: Book talk by Mike Lux of OpenLeft, author of The Progressive Revolution. The author will read an excerpt from his book, which is catching some buzz:
"As a seasoned political practitioner with a keen grasp of American history, Mike Lux brings a special perspective to the task of defining the progressive challenge today. He finds the answers in the story of America’s progress, which he tells with great care, insight, and originality."
-David Brock, Founder of Media Matters for America
"Mike is that rarest breed: a populist insider. He brings that perspective to The Progressive Revolution, telling the great story of how progressives have given us a better America."
-Wes Boyd, co-founder of MoveOn
The book talk will be held upstairs, in the space behind the bar area where the Drinking Liberally crowd usually meets.
Drinking Liberally chapters also meet in South Philadelphia on Wednesdays at the South Philly Tap Room (1509 Mifflin Street), and on Thursdays at the Blarney Stone (3929 Sansom Street).
