If you're at South Campus or the Deerwood Center this evening, Mary Childers will be discussing her memoir Welfare Brat at 7:00 p.m. We'll be watching the discussion in the theater at Deerwood; Childers will appear in person at the Wilson Center over at South.
This book is very effective in creating a productive dialogue on American social programs. It's also a gripping tale of generational struggle, the importance of education, the power of personal identity and simple perseverance.
Stop by if you can. I think you'll leave impressed...
