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.

Shipler will speak during the university's designated Community Hour, beginning at 12:30 p.m. in Amasa Stone Chapel. Alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of the university are invited. Read more.
