TUESDAY PICK | “The Value of Nothing” by Raj Patel: We’ll always have brownies


As part of its mission to think beyond the boundaries of traditional wherefore-art-thou theater, Skewed Visions hosts a series of events intended to bring community members together in discussion of topics related to theater, art, and (if there’s even a difference) life. Among those events are the “book talks” held at the company’s Casket Arts space; June 19th’s book talk will concern Raj Patel’s The Value of Nothing, a meditation on art and commerce described by Skewed Visions as “a sort of manifesto for the Occupy movement.” Refreshments on hand will include wine and brownies, post-capitalism essentials if there ever were such things.
