Blogging Locally, Thinking Globally

An Inconvenient Truth, the documentary about global warming featuring former Vice President Al Gore, opens in Philadelphia tomorrow, June 2, at the Ritz 5 and the Ritz East (and on the same day in New Jersey at the Ritz in Voorhees and the Garden in Princeton). You can find a theater near you by clicking here (PDF).

Next month, on July 11, The Nation's Victor S. Navasky will be speaking at the Free Library of Philadelphia, 1900 Vine St., as part of the national tour promoting A Matter of Opinion, a terrific book that Barbara Ehrenreich rightly described as "the autobiography of a great magazine, by the person who has best embodied it over the years." I read A Matter of Opinion when it was published last year and gave it four stars (Very Highly Recommended). It's now out in paperback.

(Navasky's tour, which begins June 22 and runs through October, includes Seattle; Los Angeles; Portland, Ore.; Berkeley, Calif.; San Francisco; St. Louis; Ann Arbor, Mich.; New York; Atlanta; and Austin, Texas.)
