Event Description

"This is a delusional time in American history," said New Jersey poet Daniel P. Quinn, heading into this Labor Day weekend."We think we are middle class,
butthemiddleclassiscollapsing."PeopleinAmericatendtolooktothe
future but forget the past," he said. And that means, argued the prolific actor,
director and producer,forgetting the role that the labormovement played in building the middle class. Over the last three decades, he added, the movement has been fighting a rearguard action defending the gains won in previous genera-
tions.  Quinn's "organized labor: Collected Poems" contains pictures of the 1913
strike in Paterson, N.J., and also some goingfurtherbackofhisIrishimmigrant
great-grandfather Bernard O’Neill at his LandmarkTavern,onWest46thStreet,at
11thAvenue,Manhattan.  Quinn, gives tours of Paterson.  He will focus on the historic links between the city and Lyons, France.
