Caitlin Zaloom - Indebted: How Families Make College Work at Any Cost — in conversation with Dorian Warren

Upcoming Event
Sunday, September 8, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Based on a series of frank and personal discussions with students and parents across the nation, Zaloom‘s book documents how the struggle to finance college education is transforming middle-class life. An associate professor of social and cultural analysis at New York University, a founding editor of Public Books, and author of Out of the Pits, Zaloom reveals the hidden consequences of student debt, describes the wrenching moral decisions parents make having to choose between jeopardizing their own financial security or forcing their children into debt, and relates the frustrations of navigating a labyrinth of government-sponsored programs, for-profit funders, and university aid requirements. Zaloom will be in conversation with Dorian Warren, president of Community Change and Community Change Action.
