Join our host, Catherine McKenney, co-founder of the non-profit CitySHAPES for a conversation with Deborah Dundas, a journalist who grew up poor and almost didn’t make it to university. 

 

In her new book On Class , she talks to writers, activists, those who work with the poor and those who are poor about what happens when we don’t talk about poverty or class—and what will happen when we do.

 

What don’t we talk about when we don’t talk about class? We don’t talk about luck, or privilege, or entitlement. We don’t talk about the trauma that goes along with being poor.

 

PLEASE NOTE: For the safety and comfort of all patrons, masks are strongly encouraged for those attending in person this Spring. Livestream tickets are available upon request for those who prefer to attend remotely.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
