Barbara Ehrenreich | Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer

Tue, April 17, 2018 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: $15.00, $33 optional single ticket + book

Journalist and social critic Barbara Ehrenreich, “who for more than 40 years has been one of our most accomplished and outspoken advocacy journalists and activists” (Los Angeles Times), is the bestselling author of 16 books, including the working-class exposé Nickel and Dimed, in which she subsisted on poverty-level wages for a year; Living with a Wild God, an intimate reconstruction of the philosophical and spiritual inquiry of her youth; and Bait and Switch, in which she investigated the economic shadow world of white-collar unemployment. In Natural Causes, Ehrenreich employs science, sociological trends, and personal experience to examine the paradox of killing ourselves to live longer lives.
