‘Grown-Up Anger’ Looks at Labor History

Grown-Up Anger, By Daniel Wolff


Grown-up Anger: The Connected Mysteries of Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and the Calumet Massacre  of 1913 is an exciting romp through labor union history. The book, which will be released June 13, explores its subject through the lens of American music.  

Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie’s protest and solidarity songs, and how they represent the disaffection of those marginalized by industrialization, war, and globalization all get a closer look.

“If you’re not sure why we need unions, and why they’re still important, consider Daniel Wolff’s Grown-Up Anger a must read,”said Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, local 1 of the American Federation of Teachers. Pre-order the book here.
