Book Event: Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment, 9/1

Meet Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter and hear about her new book, Frackopoly: The Battle for the Future of Energy and the Environment. The book shines a fresh light on the influence the oil and gas industry has on politics today, and it chronicles the political power generated by the exciting grassroots movement fighting to ban fracking and fracking infrastructure, keep fossil fuels in the ground and take back our democracy. Thursday, September 1, 6:30 PM at The New York Public Library, Mid-Manhattan Branch, 455 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10016. Reserve your seat today!
