As a professional wrestler, naval veteran, actor, commentator, author and former Governor of Minnesota, there's no one in the world with quite the same resume as Jesse Ventura. And he's coming to Rochester. Ventura will be speaking about and signing copies of his new book: American Conspiracies at the Barnes & Noble Apache Mall on October 16, 2015 at 7 pm. The book will be released on Monday, October 5th.

In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ensuing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura offers a different side to the stories we’ve all heard and read about in the history books. He takes a look at the wide gap between what the government knows and what is revealed to the American people. He says the media is complicit in these acts of deception, often refusing to consider alternate possibilities and dismissing voices that diverge from public opinion. He will look closely at the theories that have been presented over the years and examine the truth as well as the lies. Ventura does not shy away from the tough questions. As he states, “When I get denied something, I do the opposite of getting intimidated—I get angry.”

Now with new conspiracies added including information on the CIA torture scandal and the financial meltdown of 2008, Ventura describes how the United States government continues to abuse our civil liberties and why we need to continue to stand up for what we know is right. While you may not believe everything in American Conspiracies, it is guaranteed to make you think harder about everything you do believe.

And you'll have the chance to hear Ventura speak plus get an autographed copy of his book on Friday, October 16th at Barnes & Noble Apache Mall.
