Ralph Nader/Nov 28/Stockbridge MA

Dear Friends,

Ralph Nader has helped us drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments for more than four decades. "The Atlantic" named him one of the hundred most influential figures in American history.

Mr. Nader's new book "Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!" is a work of fiction but it rests on the fervent hope and belief that if we all, as engaged citizens, turn our talents and resources to the most pressing problems before us, we can achieve unimaginable success.

The E. F. Schumacher Society, The Orion Society, and the Bookloft invite you to a talk by Ralph Nader, Saturday, November 28th, 7PM at the First Congregational Church of Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Admission is free at the door. Space is limited. Donations in BerkShares and federal dollars are welcome.

Mr. Nader will be introduced by H. Emerson Blake of The Orion Society. The talk will be followed by a book signing courtesy of The Bookloft.

Please join us on November 28th,

Susan Witt, Sarah Hearn, Stefan Apse, Jasmine Stine, and Kate Poole
Staff of the E. F. Schumacher Society
