"In The Struggle" virtual Book Talk, Sierra Club Tehipite Chapter General Meeting via Zoom
Join us for a virtual book talk with author Daniel O'Connell as he discusses "In The Struggle: Scholars and the Fight Against Industrial Agribusiness." From the early twentieth century and across generations to the present, "In the Struggle" brings together the stories of eight politically engaged scholars, documenting their opposition to industrial-scale agribusiness in California. As the narrative unfolds, their previously censored and suppressed research and personal accounts are introduced into the public arena for the first time. In his book talk, Daniel O’Connell will describe the historic, subterranean slugfests over water rights, labor organizing, and the corruption of democratic principles and public institutions, much of which transpired in the San Joaquin Valley of California.
