VANCOUVER - More than 200 CUPE 391 library workers were on hand at the Vancouver Public Library main branch Friday for a visit from internationally acclaimed author Naomi Klein.

Klein was joined by her assistant Debora Levy who is a librarian and whom Klein credits for making her new book The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism possible with her valuable skills and resourcefulness.
