Amy Goldstein to Speak About New Book “Janesville”

Come join author and Pulitzer prize winning journalist Amy Goldstein, and Owen Graduate School of Management Professor David Parsley, on April 3rd for a discussion of Goldstein’s book “Janesville: An American Story.”

Goldstein’s new book chronicles the story of what happens to an industrial town when a factory shuts down. According to Goldstein, “Most observers record the immediate shock of vanished jobs, but few stay around long enough to notice what happens next, when a community with a can-do spirit tries to pick itself up.” Named Book of the Year by Financial Times and McKinsey & Company, The New York Times calls it “[M]oving and magnificently well-researched.”

Join Professor Parsley’s students from 1:30-3:00 in the Central Library Community Room. Seating is available on a first-come basis. Email Catherine.Milsom@owen.vanderbilt.edu with any questions.
