Main Library, Thursday, April 17, 7 p.m.
In his latest book, The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap, journalist Matt Taibbi uncovers “the Divide”—the seam in American life where our two most troubling trends, growing wealth inequality and mass incarceration, come together. This divide, Taibbi argues, allows fraud by the hyper-wealthy to go unpunished, while poverty itself is turned into a crime.
Taibbi, a contributing editor for Rolling Stone, is the author of five previous books including the New York Times bestsellers The Great Derangement and Griftopia.
There are no more tickets available for this event. Limited standby seating may be available prior to the start of the program.
