West Edge Books, 725 Milam St., will present New Orleans author, editor and activist Jordan Flaherty on Tuesday, April 24, at 7:00 p.m., says Michael Parker. Flaherty is an editor of Left Turn magazine and will be reading from his contribution to the recently published South End Press anthology What Lies Beneath: Katrina, Race and the State of the Nation. Flaherty's contribution is titled, "corporate reconstruction and grassroots resistance."

Scheduled to appear with Flaherty is Jennifer Whitney, a Baton Rouge native and Pacific Northwest resident and co-editor of the anthology We Are Everywhere: The Irresistible Rise of Global Anticapitalism. She is a health care worker, and organizes clinics and street medic teams for direct actions. When she's at home in the Pacific Northwest, she can be found working with the Black Cross Health Collective in Portland, or drumming with the Infernal Noise Brigade.
