Book Launch: “The Fault in Our SARS”

Join us February 15

Two online events, with special guests

Hosted by Edgar Rivera Colón, People’s CDC 

Join Rob Wallace and special guests on February 15 for two online book launches for The Fault in Our SARS: COVID-19 in the Biden Era, the new book by Wallace and co-authors.

We’ll be getting together to talk about the book, COVID, and how we arrived at a place where a pandemic that continues to infect millions every week and kill thousands is treated as if it is over.

With music by DJ Justin Cheatham.

Support ARERC

As the launch is a fundraiser for the Agroecology and Rural Economics Research Corps (ARERC), we are asking attendees to make a suggested donation of US$10 per event if they are able.

You can donate through PayPal (RobWallacePReP), Venmo (@RobWallace_PReP) or CashApp ($RobWallacePReP).

But all are welcome and no one will be turned away–while seats last–if they are unable to donate.

Thank you!
