Ross Perlin: "Intern Nation" 

When: Thu., May 12, 6 p.m. 2011
Price: free
According to the Fair Labor Standards Act, nearly 50 percent of US internships are illegal. But that doesn't stop organizations - from the largest corporations to the tiniest, most well-meaning nonprofits - from exploiting this vulnerable workforce. Ross Perlin, who did his time in the free-labor trenches, takes a long, hard (and often funny) look at the issue in Intern Nation: How to Earn Nothing and Learn Little in the Brave New Economy. Have your "assistant" save you a seat on Thursday, May 12, at University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley). 6 p.m., free. 510-548-0585 or UniversityPressBooks.com
