This January, join us for Book Review Live, a new event series celebrating the written word. Our first event marks the publication of the latest book by Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn — “Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope.”
In a discussion led by Jennifer Szalai, The Times’s nonfiction book critic, the authors will explore the disintegration of America’s working class — the result of lost jobs, drugs, shattered families and failed policies. Kristof and WuDunn remove their professional distance as they share the stories from friends and neighbors that inspired “Tightrope.”
The conversation doesn’t stop there. Take a closer look at the consequences of globalization with Andrew Ross Sorkin, the founder of DealBook. Watch exclusive clips from a forthcoming documentary based on the book. And hear a live reading from a special guest.
