Good luck getting Thomas Friedman's new book Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution--and How It Can Renew America from the library when it comes out this September. When Mr. Globalization's best seller The World Is Flat hit the shelves in 2005, so many patrons requested it that I had to wait 9 months for my turn to crack its pages. Friedman is discussing his new book Friday at noon at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas for the World Affairs Council luncheon. Ticket prices are $20 for students, $55 for members and $75 for non-members. Visit dfwworld.org for further details.
