Description

From an acclaimed musician comes an inside look at the Occupy Movement-one of the most controversial and influential progressive movements of our time. In 2011, internationally recognized singer/songwriter Laura Love put her career-and her comfortable life-on hold to join the Occupy Movement. Both profoundly moving and hysterically funny, Nights in Tents is her memoir about the year she spent immersed in the political culture of Occupy, and living in chaotic tent encampments from Wall Street to Oakland. Traveling through the United States, Love pitched her tent on city center concrete plazas; she helped shut down the Port of Oakland; she took over a Bank of America in San Francisco; and was teargassed, arrested, and jailed. All the while, she formed close bonds with the disparate characters who make up the 99 percent. Nights in Tents is an engaging account of an activist on the front lines, underscoring the importance of this moment in history and the crucial decisions in front of us.
