About this event:
Join us as Susan Crawford discusses and signs copies of her new book titled Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age.
Captive Audience is the story of how consumers, let down by deregulatory government policies, are losing the fight for affordable, high-speed Internet access in America. From smartphones and television programming to the cost of high-speed Internet access, Captive Audience illustrates that in the Internet era, very few companies control our information destiny.
This program is presented by the Chicago Public Library in partnership with The Roosevelt Institute.
Program location: Multipurpose Room, lower level
Seating is limited and available first come, first served. Books will be available for purchase and the author will autograph books immediately following the program.
