GREENFIELD — An in-person presentation of the newly published book “Fish Discover Water Last: Richard L. Grossman on corporations, democracy and us” will be held at The LAVA Center, 324 Main St., on Thursday, Dec. 2, from 6 to 7 p.m.

Richard Grossman (1943–2011) was a researcher, organizer and lecturer on the growth and powers of corporations, citizen movements and more. According to a LAVA Center press release, Grossman likened the experience of fish in water to that of Americans going about their daily lives without awareness of the corporate power and culture that permeate our society and government. The book is a compilation of years of Grossman’s talks, edited by Anna Gyorgy and published by Paul Richmond of Human Error Publishing.

When the book is presented in Greenfield, sales will benefit The LAVA Center and the Traprock Center for Peace & Justice, where Gyorgy is a board member and communications coordinator. According to the press release, the book will be available for $15 each, two copies for $25 or five copies for $50.

For the in-person event, reserve a seat by making a donation at bit.ly/3cUzrs6. Masks are required, and as space is limited, with seating distanced, reservations are strongly suggested.

To view the event online, purchasing a ticket at the same link will allow you to view a video starting the Monday morning following the presentation, and also purchase books to be mailed to you.
