OK Boomer, Let’s Talk: How My Generation Got Left Behind
In OK Boomer, Let’s Talk, journalist (and Millennial) Jill Filipovic tells the definitive story of her generation–and it’s no joke. Talking to gig workers, economists, policy makers, and dozens of struggling Millennials drowning in debt on a planet quite literally in flames, Filipovic paints a shocking and nuanced portrait of a generation being left behind.
Filipovic shows that Millennials are not the avocado-toast-eating snowflakes of Boomer outrage fantasies. But they are the first American generation that will do worse than their parents. “OK, Boomer” isn’t just a sarcastic dismissal–it’s a recognition that Millennials are in crisis, and that Boomer voters, bankers, and policy makers are responsible.
Filipovic will be in conversation with Baratunde Thurston, an Emmy-nominated host who has worked for The Onion, produced for The Daily Show, and advised the Obama White House. He is also the creator and host of Live On Lockdown.
Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business.
The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a book from our website.
We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.Buy tickets/get more info now
