Please join Busboys Books as we welcome Juan González of Democracy Now! to our 5th and K location in conversation with Joe Davidson.

A well-respected columnist with the New York Daily News from 1987-2016, Juan González has focused his legendary investigative reporting on New York's mayor Bill de Blasio in «Reclaiming Gotham: Bill de Blasio and the Movement to End America's Tale of Two Cities.» González is the co-host of nationally syndicated Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman.

In «Reclaiming Gotham,» González concludes that Mayor de Blasio’s victory represented the maturing of a nationwide revolt of cities against corporate-oriented, neo-liberal policies that have dominated urban America for decades: the privatization of government services, the seizure of public parks and streets, unbridled commercial development, gentrification that has systematically displaced black and brown residents from downtown neighborhoods, and the racial targeting of minority communities by local police departments.

He will be joined in conversation with Joe Davidson. Davidson writes the Federal Insider column, formerly the Federal Diary, a Washington Post column on the federal government. For 13 years he was a Washington and foreign correspondent with The Wall Street Journal. Before joining The Post as an assistant city editor in 2005, he was an editor with the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies. He is a founding board member of the National Association of Black Journalists and is in its Hall of Fame.

Books will be available for purchase before and after the event.
