The Progressive Forum presents Eric Schlosser


A decade after Fast Food Nation exposed the harms of the industrial food system, famed investigative journalist Eric Schlosser addresses the existential threat of nuclear weapons. Schlosser returns to The Progressive Forum to launch his latest book, Command and Control. From recently declassified documents, he reports on missile explosions, bomber crashes, rogue officers and more. Unlike other books on the high-level diplomacy of arms control, Schlosser provides an unprecedented look at the everyday management of our weapons systems and the dangers routinely faced by those managing the arsenals — and what needs to be fixed. 

His book, Fast Food Nation, was on The New York Times bestseller list for over two years and was translated into more than 20 languages. He made several appearances before Congress on food safety. He will sign books and greet fans at the end of the evening.
