There are two terrific book events scheduled for Monday January 7th, here in Washington DC. Les Leopold, author of The Man Who Hated Work and Loved Labor: The Life and Times of Tony Mazzocchi, will be in town to talk about Tony’s life and legacy.
Les’ book is a great read, an inspiring and illuminating account of Tony’s lifetime organizing for worker rights and safe factories. Here’s an excerpt, to give you a sense of the book’s content.
At noon on Monday January 7th, Les and several distinguished speakers from the House of Labor will be speaking at noon in the Gompers Room at AFL-CIO headquarters, 815 16th St. NW. Later that evening, there will be a book party at Busboys and Poets Cafe (2021 14th St. NW) starting at 6:30 PM.
More than any other individual, Tony is responsible for inspiring and building the current occupational safety and health movement. These events will be a fine an opportunity to catch up on old and new friends, and celebrate Tonyâs life and work.
