Antifascist Reading Group:


**Please Note Change of Date!**

Tuesday, April 4, 6:30-9pm
Antenna, 3718 St. Claude

THEME #1 of Antenna’s Antifascist Reading Group is State Surveillance and Community Security, featuring a discussion of the tools, tactics, reach and implications of broad-sweeping surveillance through the lens of fiction and non-fiction. Antenna is pleased to announce that Professor Bill Quigley, JD, will co-facilitate the conversation.

The two books for this theme will be “No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State” by Glenn Greenwald (304 pages, Picador, 2015) and “The Shockwave Rider” by John Brunner (288 pages, Del Ray, 1995 {orig. 1975}). We are grateful to Maple Street Book Shop, who will carry copies of the books we will be reading all year for those who want to shop local; Antenna will also have copies in our lending library for those who don’t wish or are unable to purchase their own copies!
