Another amazing event at the Big Green bookshop, when on October 15th Wood Green welcomes Owen Jones.
Owen's a socialist, Guardian columnist and author of internationally bestselling book Chavs.
His new book, "The Establishment" has just been published. In it Owen offers a biting critique of the British Establishment and a passionate plea for democracy. Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen sets out on a journey into the heart of our Establishment, from the lobbies of Westminster to the newsrooms, boardrooms and trading rooms of Fleet Street and the City.
Exposing the revolving doors that link these worlds, and the vested interests that bind them together, Jones shows how, in claiming to work on our behalf, the people at the top are doing precisely the opposite. In fact, they represent the biggest threat to our democracy today - and it is time they were challenged.
Owen will be at the shop to present this argument, and to debate its implications.
Tickets for this are just £17.00 (which includes a copy of his book) or £5 (entrance only).
Both Owen's books will be available on the night.
We hope you can make it, however if you are unable, you can pre-order signed copies of his book, which we'll post out after the event (free P+P in the UK)
