James B. Steele - The Betrayal of the American Dream
All Library locations will close at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, December 17 for a staff development event. We will reopen for regular hours Thursday, December 18.
Twenty years ago James B. Steele co-authored America: What Went Wrong, which argued that the middle class was shrinking, guaranteed pensions would become a thing of the past, and millions would be without health insurance. His new book asserts that “We grossly underestimated how fast the economic ruling class would pull the rug out from under everyone else.”
Steele and his writing partner Donald Bartlett are the only reporting team ever to have received two Pulitzer Prizes and two National Magazine Awards.
