The Working Poor: Invisible in America author to speak during Alumni Weekend
David Shipler, author of The Working Poor: Invisible in America, will speak at Case Western Reserve University on October 5 as part of the Alumni Weekend and Homecoming activities.
In his latest book, Shipler, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and former foreign correspondent for the New York Times, profiles the lives of Americans unable to share in America's economic prosperity and examines the causes and consequences of poverty in our society. The book was selected for the Common Reading Program during the summer for all new undergraduate students entering Case Western Reserve.
