The United States controls more ocean than any other country, yet ninety-one percent of seafood eaten in America is imported. Additionally, American fishermen catch more fish than Americans could ever possibly eat, but we continue to export it — more and more often to Asia. New York Times bestselling author Paul Greenberg’s latest book tracks the story of our modern consumption, environmental barriers to its production, and how to relocalize our eating habits. In American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood, he travels the country searching for the origins of marine dishes — and answers to why we’re shipping it all overseas. At a time when “sustainability of our oceans is a growing global priority,” Greenberg says there’s still hope to reverse course and regain control of our seafood. Greenberg is a regular contributor to The New York Times and the author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food (2010). There will be a post-event reception with Alaskan salmon bites. Presented by:Town Hall in partnership with Chefs Collaborative and Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association, as part of the Civics series and Town Green sub series, presented with The Peach Foundation, Wyncote Foundation NW, and Elliott Bay Book Company. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True-Brown Foundation. Series media sponsorship provided by The Stranger and KUOW. Tickets: $5. Town Hall member benefits: Priority seating, discounted onsite book sales. Doors open: 6:30 p.m. Learn more: About Greenberg.

Glenn Greenwald for one night only in Seattle, introducing his new book, No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the US Surveillance State. Tickets only $6! Available at: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/glenn-greenwald-in-seattle-edward-snowden-the-nsa-us-surveillance-state-tickets-11587116377?aff=es2&rank=3&sid=a30120fada1f11e3b73222000a9f3045 In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to meet a source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels. That source turned out to be the 29-year-old NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and his revelations about the agency’s widespread, systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. As the arguments rage on and the government considers various proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowden’s disclosures. In April 2014, Greenwald and his colleagues at The Guardian received the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Don’t miss Greenwald speak in-person as he fits all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity eleven-day trip to Hong Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing fresh information on the NSA’s unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself. Sponsored by Haymarket Books, Center for Economic Research and Social Change and Glaser Progress Foundation.
