INSIGHTS FROM A BESTSELLING AUTHOR: School of Public Service students Feroz Fernandes, Jessica Simmons, Pat Reid and Jennifer Aron enjoy a light moment during a video conference with Harvard University professor Robert Putnam​ at a President’s Book Club​
Book Club
event in May on DePaul’s Lincoln Park 

Putnam, Harvard’s Malkin Professor of Public Policy, spoke about his bestselling book, “Our Kids: The American Dream,” which focuses on the opportunity gap that exists because of the income gap, class segregation and the collapse of the working class family.

The book explores the consequences for kids and makes recommendations on what we can do about it.
