      EVENT DETAILS
      George Packer: An Inner History of the New America

      Staff Writer, The New Yorker; Author, The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America

      Packer argues that seismic economic shifts during a single generation have created a country of winners and losers, leaving the social contract in pieces and setting citizens adrift to find new paths forward. He will present the story of this America over the past three decades, which he sees as a superpower in danger of coming apart at the seams, its elites no longer elite, its institutions no longer relevant.
