Come join us Thursday, May 21, 2015, from 5:30pm-8:30pm, to hear John D. Bassett III of Vaughan Bassett Furniture speak about keeping manufacturing in the USA and saving American jobs. He’ll also be signing copies of the New York Times Best Seller “Factory Man”, written by Beth Macy, which chronicles history of the Basset Family and their rise to domination of wood furniture manufacturing in the USA throughout the 20th century. It also addresses American furniture manufacturer’s brush with extinction as global capitalism led to outsourcing and the massive loss of 73,000 jobs, as well as the crippling of many southern furniture towns. It finally details John D. Bassett III’s years’ long Capital Hill fight to save these American jobs from Chinese takeover. The book is getting special treatment as Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman plan its production as a miniseries for HBO.
Books will be available for a discounted purchase of $20. All proceeds from the book sales will go to the Dean Michael Clarizio Cancer Foundation, a New Jersey charity, and Suburban Furniture will be matching the donation to the foundation. Also Vaughan Bassett Furniture will be giving away a bedroom set valued up to $2000. All non-furniture attendees will have a chance to win!
