The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author has just published Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality. Johnston edited and contributed to this collection of essays by leading scholars and political figures, including President Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman.

“No natural forces determine income, wealth and the quality of human life. We make the decisions about who will prosper and who will not,” says Johnston. “For now, what we have chosen is extreme inequality, the worst by far of any nation with a modern economy.”

Date: Saturday, May 3

Time: 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.

Place: Loucks Auditorium, Salem Public Library, 585 Liberty St SE, Salem

The talk is organized by the Oregon Center for Public Policy and co-sponsored by the Salem Progressive Film Series.
