Our May General Meeting presented
The new book from national author (and Club member)
Political analyst David Dayen discussed his new book,
'Chain of Title: How Three Ordinary Americans Uncovered Wall Street's Great Foreclosure Fraud'.
David has written for Salon, the American Prospect, New Republic, and Fiscal Times. He's covered political movements and economic chicanery, and brings the two together in this true story of three plain Americans pulling the curtain back on the biggest fraud in memory.
(The book got a great review Friday in the NYTimes.)
