Weeeeee’re back! You know the story. We think is pretty special but one thing that doesn’t set us apart is that like all community media organizations we depend on membership to keep going. Today is the last day of our summer membership drive where you can still get our bonus gifts — signed copies of great books by some of the most exciting authors around (no tote bags here).

Plus, of course, when you become a member (for as little as $5/month) you get a free subscription to a great progressive magazine! So don’t delay, sign up today!

Here’s a list of the books we are giving away:

Maude Barlow, Blue Covenant: The Global Water Crisis and the Coming Battle for the Right to Water

Rawi Hage, Cockroach

Lawrence Hill, Any Known Blood

Monia Mazigh, Hope and Despair: My Struggle to Free my Husband, Maher Arar

Judy Rebick, Transforming Power
