Lou Dobbs to speak in Scottsdale - Mon. Nov. 12

Residents in greater Scottsdale and Phoenix will have an opportunity to meet and hear CNN personality and best selling author Lou Dobbs, Monday evening, November 12, at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. There will be a private reception with Mr. Dobbs from 6:30 – 7:30pm, a presentation from 7:30 – 9:00pm, and a book-signing following the presentation. Charles Goyette, radio talk-show personality who is often on Dobb’s show will emcee the event.

Dobb’s latest book, Independents Day: Awakening the American Spirit is a populist’s view of the critical issues and challenges that confront the presidential candidates and American voters as we approach the 2008 election and will be the focus of his remarks. Dobbs will discuss why he believes the public policy choices over the past thirty years have eroded individual liberties, disenfranchised the middle class, reduced worker rights and pay, and led our nation into social and political division at home as well as into conflict around the world. Dobbs will discuss what he believes are the consequences of continuing to follow existing domestic and foreign policies. In addition, he will explore how he believes we can move forward from here.

Lou Dobbs is the anchor and managing editor of CNN’s Lou Dobbs Tonight. He writes for Money and U.S. News & World Report and manages the Lou Dobbs Money Letter. He has received the Peabody Award, the Luminary Award by the Business Journalism Review, the Horatio Alger Association Award for Distinguished Americans, as well as an Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The presentation is free for Boomerz members and $12 for non-members. The reception is $75 for Boomerz members, and $125 for non-members which includes one book per family. Both events are open to the public. To register for this event or for more information about it or other Scottsdale Boomerz activities, go to or call (480) 990-1450.
