Local Author Visits: Lillie Guyer
Wed, Nov 28
07:00 PM - 08:30 PM
Join journalist Lillie Guyer, co-author of Outraged: How Detroit and the Wall Street Car Czars Killed the American Dream, on Wednesday, November 28 at 7:00 PM in the Friends Auditorium. Ms. Guyer will discuss how the businesses of almost two thousand men and women were destroyed by two automakers, General Motors and Chrysler, during the government-led corporate restructurings in 2009. The story is told from the perspective of these entrepreneurs, the auto dealers. Learn how Wall Street and corporate interests were bailed out while Main Street workers were sold out. Nearly 200,000 jobs were lost nationwide.
Co-author Tamara Darvish, with two other dealers, organized and became leaders of the Committee to Restore Dealer Rights with one specific goal: to help terminated dealers get back their dealerships. The activist group took their fight to Congress and to the steps of the White House.
