It’s the American dream: get a good education, work hard, buy a house, and achieve success.

But during the last 25 years a disturbing “opportunity gap” has emerged. Robert Putnam tells the tale of lessening opportunity through stories of rich and poor kids from across the country. He draws on a formidable body of research and provides a disturbing account of the American dream that should initiate a deep examination of both the future of our country and the future of our kids.

Putnam is author of Bowling Alone and Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis. He is the Peter and Isabel Malkin Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University. Putnam has received numerous honors, including the National Humanities Medal. The Economist said, Putnam’s “scholarship is wide-ranging, his intelligence luminous, his tone modest, his prose unpretentious and frequently funny. You won’t want to miss this event.
