Generation Occupy 
Event: Saturday, December 16

6-8 pm

Local journalist Michael Levitin will be in conversation with Soma’s co-owner, journalist Tanya Pampalone, about his book, Generation Occupy. 


“The book sets the historical record straight about Occupy Wall Street’s lasting impacts. Far from a passing phenomenon, the movement marked a new era of social and political transformation, reigniting the labor movement, remaking the Democratic Party, and reviving a culture of protest that has put the fight for social, economic, environmental and racial justice at the forefront of a generation.”

Michael has written for The Atlantic, The Guardian, Financial Times, Newsweek, Time, Los Angeles Times, Forbes and The International Herald Tribune, among others. He lives in Rockridge with his wife and two children.
