The UAlbany School of Public Health in Rensselaer will host bestselling author Dr. Robert Putnam Wednesday. The event is free and open to the public.
MEET THE AUTHOR: Harvard University’s Dr. Robert Putnam, the author of Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis, will speak at the School of Public Health on Wednesday evening, September 16th, at 5:00 p.m. in the main auditorium. Dr. Putnam will sign copies of his books (including his equally well-known Bowling Alone) following his talk. This event is part of the School of Public Health’s “All School Read” program which began last spring when students chose Our Kids to read over the summer and explore the issues when they returned to classes this fall. Join us for a lively conversation about the growing inequality of opportunity in the U.S. Light refreshments will be served. Haven’t read the book? You are welcome to come and join the discussion of the timely public health issues raised by Dr. Putnam. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at a 20% discount from The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza. Members of book groups and all interested individuals are welcome to attend.
