NHI’s John Atlas to Discuss New ACORN Book

John Atlas, a founder of the National Housing Institute and Shelterforce, will appear today in the 1 p.m. hour (eastern) on WNYC’s Leonard Lopate Show to discuss his new book, Seeds of Change: The Story of ACORN, America’s Most Controversial Antipoverty Community Organizing Group.

Atlas’ new book goes “beyond the headlines of the last Presidential campaign to describe what really happened in ACORN’s massive voter registration drives, why it triggered an unrelenting attack by Fox News and the Republican Party, and how it confronted its internal divisions and scandals.”

New York-area listeners can tune in at 93.9 FM or 820 AM; everyone can tune in at www.wnyc.org.
