The S.A.F.E. (Support for Addicts and Families by Empowerment) Board is presenting Professor Robert Putnam, the author of Bowling Alone
and Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis
, at our next coalition meeting on February 2, 2016 at the Mercer Auditorium at Horace Mann School, 224 Oak Street, Franklin, MA.
The coalition meeting begins at 7 p.m., and we expect Prof. Putnam to speak between 7:30 pm and 8:45 pm. He will begin with a presentation and then will sit down with Dr. Anne Bergen for a one on one dialogue. The program is not authorized for taping or re-broadcast, so this will be your only opportunity to hear this nationally acclaimed author in our area. Our Kids
is a groundbreaking examination of the growing inequality gap and why fewer Americans today have the opportunity for upward mobility. You can learn more about the book and research by clicking here
. Bowling Alone
talks about how we have become increasingly disconnected from one another and how social structures have disintegrated. It should be a fascinating talk and of particular interest to those wishing to understand the sociological climate surrounding the opioid crisis.
