Meet Amy Goodman today

KVMR Community Radio in Nevada City will host a talk and book signing tonight for Amy Goodman and Denis Moynaham for their new release “The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope.” There is a VIP reception from 6 to 7 p.m. with the talk and book signing from 7 to 8:30 at Miners Foundry Cultural Center.

The book, with a forward by Michael Moore, provides “a vivid record of the events, conflicts and social movements shaping our society today. They give voice to ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power across the country and around the world,” according to publicity for “The Silenced Majority.”

This book is a sequel to her fourth New York Times bestseller, “Breaking the Sound Barrier.” Goodman is the host and executive producer of “Democracy Now!” a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on more than 1,100 public television and radio stations worldwide.

Their Nevada City stop is one of 100 across the country, and KVMR was approached with the opportunity to bring her back after her January appearance associated with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival.

“We were one of the ‘chosen’ 100,” said KVMR program director Steve Baker.

He said that Goodman has been incredibly kind with her time, going on air late the other night with him. She and Moynaham will also be available before the talk at a meet-and-greet for VIP ticket holders.

VIP tickets are $45 for KVMR members, $50 for non-members. General admission tickets are $25 for members, $29 for non-members and video-viewing tickets are $15 for members, $20 for non-members. Video-viewing seats are in the Stone Hall, where the event will be projected live.

VIP tickets include appetizers, one wine ticket and a copy of “The Silenced Majority.” Tickets are still available at the Nevada City Box Office and at BriarPatch Co-op.
