Robert Putnam On The American Dream

Jun 3, 2016

You know the story; with a good education, hard work, and a little stick-to-itiveness, you can make a better life for yourself and your kids. It's quite literally the American dream. Political scientist and author Robert D. Putnam wonders, though, if that narrative is becoming less attainable.

The Kansas City Public Library is hosting a discussion with Robert D. Putnam about his book 'Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis' at the Plaza Branch at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8. Visit for more information and to RSVP.
