TOWN HALL's Writers Bloc Hosts Author and Radio Commentator the Hon. Robert Reich

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2007) - TOWN HALL LOS ANGELES presents Robert Reich, Author, "Supercapitalism: The Transformation of Business, Democracy and Everyday Life," talking with Marc Maron on Thursday, October 4, 2007. The event is the second program this fall for the new series TOWN HALL's Writers Bloc. Los Angeles literati have the opportunity to ask Reich about the current state of American capitalism.

Speaking on his most recent book "Supercapitalism," Reich said, "The issues that I'm talking about transcend the business cycle... Democrats and people on the left tend to blame corporations for all that has gone wrong. Republicans tend to believe that the so-called free market has all the right solutions. Both sides are dead wrong."

Former Secretary of the US Department of Labor for President Bill Clinton, Reich is currently a Professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, a commentator on NPR's Marketplace, and author of 11 books.

Maron is a standup comic, actor, and writer known for his incisive cultural and political commentary, mystical ruminations, and neurotic insights into human nature. He is the co-founder of the alternative comedy event "Eating It" in New York.
