Mark Crispin Miller welcomes Steve Fraser, author of Wall Street: America's Dream Palace (Yale University Press) and Josh Ozersky, author of The Hamburger: A History (Yale University Press) to McNally Robinson Bookstore for this month's First Tuesday reading!
This monthly series hosted by author and activist Mark Crispin Miller features authors whose books tackle political and public issues from a stance outside the mainstream. Miller edits Yale's Icons of America series: short works on the image of America through the lens of a single iconic individual, event, object, or cultural phenomenon. Tonight he talks with series contributors Josh Ozersky, who unfolds the surprising significance of the hamburger as an American icon, and Steve Fraser, who recounts the colorful history of America's complicated relationship with Wall Street.
Mark Crispin Miller presents John R. MacArthur, publisher of Harper's Magazine and author of the new book YOU CAN'T BE PRESIDENT: The Outrageous Barriers to Democracy in America.
