Nomi Prins: 'Black Tuesday'--and Today
Former Wall-Street-insider-turned-journalist Nomi Prins last visited Town Hall in 2009 with her economic wake-up call, It Takes a Pillage. She returns with a similar theme, and a 'novel' approach: Black Tuesday, is a fictional tale set on the brink of the stock market crash of 1929 but has timeless themesand scary parallels to today's economic hardships. By capturing the swirl of New York City's greed, power, romance, and desperation, Prins reveals a world of fraud, obsession, and economic devastation in a turbulent era that shines a revealing, and disturbing, light on today's world. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with Demos and Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
