On October 20, Shannon will be interviewing Amy Goldstein, author of Janesville: An American Story. The talk, live at the Traverse City Opera House, is part of the year-round National Writers Series book festival.
Here's a description of what they'll be talking about, via the National Writers Series:
What is Janesville, Wisconsin, without its General Motors plant? Certainly not what it once was. Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Goldstein says the city—despite its intelligence and determination—has still not rebounded. Her new book, Janesville: An American Story, was named a Best Book of 2017 by NPR, Wall Street Journal, The Economist and Business Insider. Guest host is Shannon Henry Kleiber, producer of To the Best of Our Knowledge.
In addition, it was the winner of the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize for narrative nonfiction, the Financial Times/McKinsey Best Business Book of the Year, and the 800-CEO-Read Business Book of the Year. And Barack Obama listed it as among his top 10 books of 2017.
The talk is on 10/20 at 7 p.m. You can learn more about attending here.
