Book Party – IMAGINE: Living in a Socialist USA


Friends of the Guild,A great new book has just been published with essays by some 25 leftist trouble-makers about what is wrong with the USA and how to fix it.   Among the authors is Detroit/Michigan NLG member Ron Reosti, and long-time Detroit activist Dianne Feeley.

According to    “Imagine: Living In a Socialist U.S.A., edited by Francis Goldin, Debby Smith, and Michael Steven Smith, is at once an indictment of American capitalism as the root cause of our spreading dystopia and a cri de coeur for what life could be like in the United States if we had economic as well as a real political democracy. This anthology features essays by revolutionary thinkers, activists, and artists—including Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore, civil rights activist Angela Davis, incarcerated journalist Mumia Abu Jamal, and economist Rick Wolff— addressing various aspects of a new society and, crucially, how to get from where we are now to where we want to be, living in a society that is truly fair and just.”

A New Book Party will be held on April 28, 2014, starting at 6:30 pm at Source Books at 4240 Cass Ave., in Detroit, near Wayne State University.

Heidi Boghosian, Executive Director of the NLG, describes this book:  “Part history, part analysis, part call to action, ‘Imagine: Living in a Socialist USA,’ is a roadmap for anyone troubled by the social, political and economic inequities plaguing this country and the world.
Alice Walker says:  “What are the possibilities inherent in Socialism? What is it? What can it mean to humanity ’s future? What would it look like in America? These are the questions raised in this exquisitely timely book. We must profoundly change the way we live, or we will not survive. A Socialism that we make ourselves could be the answer.”Hope to see you there.
