In the months leading up to the 2012 election, Rana B. Khoury traveled across her home state of Ohio to interview the Americans hit hardest by the Great Recession. Since 1904, with only two exceptions, Ohioans have voted for the winner in every presidential election. If the nation follows Ohio, she asks, how much progress has the rest of the country made in its economic recovery?
Join us for a free discussion with Ms. Khoury about her new book, As Ohio Goes: Life in the Post‑Recession Nation, an exploration of how average Americans have survived the worst recession since World War II and in-depth look at the troubled state of the American Dream. She will be joined in conversation by Amy Hanauer, Founder and Executive Director of Policy Matters Ohio.
