Join journalist and essayist Sarah Smarsh, in conversation with United Way’s Senior Vice President of Community Impact, Michael Wilkos, to learn about her powerful memoir, Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth. A National Book Award finalist, Heartland reveals one woman's experience of working class poverty with a startlingly observed, eye-opening, and topical personal story. Combining memoir with compelling analysis and cultural commentary, the book is an uncompromising look at class, identity, and the particular perils of having less in a country known for its excess. Along with her widely published work on this topic, Smarsh is a fellow at Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy.
