Iowa City author and blogger Chris Jones, will read from his new book published by Ice Cube Press, The Swine Republic: Struggles with the Truth about Agriculture and Water Quality. “The Swine Republic‘s fact-filled essays shine a clear, revealing light on Big Ag’s many dirty water secrets, baloney-filled soil conservation programs, and the well-funded political muscle that keeps all in place both in Iowa and in the U.S. His inarguable numbers, keen eye, and hacksaw wit make you stand up and shout, ‘Let’s change this!’”—Alan Guebert
