WUD Distinguished Lecture Series presents a lecture by Naomi Klein. Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist and author of the New York Times and #1 international bestseller, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. Published in 30 languages with over a million copies in print, The Shock Doctrine appeared on multiple best of year lists, including as a New York Times Critics Pick of the Year. The New York Times called it “a movement bible.” In 2011, Time magazine named it one of the Top 100 non-fiction books published since 1923. She is currently at work on a new book and film on how the climate crisis can spur economic and political transformation. A powerful and provocative voice, Klein translates the power of her pen into highly engaging keynotes, addressing issues from climate change to megabrand influences on culture and government to free trade and resource privatization. This event is free and open to the public.
Unticketed event. Sponsored by the Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) Distinguished Lecture Series and the Havens Center.
