Public Affairs Group Hosts Speaker Nov. 13

The Alameda Public Affairs Forum is presenting a talk by journalist Robert Scheer from 7 to 9:30 p.m. this Saturday, November 13, at the Alameda Free Library.

The title of his talk, as well as his recent book, is “The Great American Stickup: How Reagan Republicans and Clinton Democrats Enriched Wall Street While Mugging Main Street.”

In his new book, Scheer lays out the bi-partisan origins of the financial scandals that wrecked the American economy and left millions unemployed. And he outlines his thoughts on why the present economic mess takes place at the same time as wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, along with other dangers in the Middle East.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion.

Those who wish to meet for conversation before the talk are invited to come at 6 p.m. for coffee and refreshments. And everyone is asked to bring snacks or drinks to share.

For information call (510) 814-9592.
