Tuxedo Park Library Authors’ Circle Presents Caitlin Zaloom
Adults

The Tuxedo Park Library Authors’ Circle presents Caitlin Zaloom author of “Indebted: How Families Make College Work at Any Cost” in conversation with Gerald Howard, Executive Editor and Vice President of Doubleday Books in the Reading Room at the library.

Indebted demonstrates that the struggle to pay for college is one of the defining features of middle-class life in America today.  The book, based on 160 interviews with parents and students who borrow to pay for higher education, takes readers into the homes of middle-class families throughout the nation to reveal the hidden consequences of student debt and the ways that financing college has transformed family life.

Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education in the Obama administration calls it “required reading for everyone concerned about the costs of higher education.”
