The Nevins Memorial Library will be welcoming authors Daniel Korschun and Grant Welker to speak on their new book, We Are Market Basket, on August 27th from 7-8:30pm.
With its arresting firsthand accounts from the streets and executive suites, We Are Market Basket is as inspiring as it is instructive. What is it about Market Basket and its leader that provokes such ferocious loyalty? How does a company spread across three states maintain a culture that embraces everyone—from cashier to customer—as family? Can a company really become an industry leader by prioritizing stakeholders over shareholders?
Set against a backdrop of bad blood and corporate greed, We Are Market Basket is, above all, a page-turner that chronicles the epic rise, fall, and redemption of this iconic and uniquely American company.

Meanwhile, the documentary film, Food Fight, based on the same 2014 Market Basket dispute and labor stoppages, is coming closer to a release date in the Fall. Food Fight: Inside the Battle for Market Basket, directed by Jay Childs, a New Hampshire-based film maker, has been financed in part by fan donations and a Kickstarter campaign. See the documentary’s website, FoodFightFilm.com and Boston’s WCBV Channel 5’s recent article for more information on the film.
