Best selling author Jonathan Kozol to speak at Berks

shame
The Penn State Berks Lecture Series brings best selling author Jonathan Kozol to Berks on Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium.

Jonathan Kozol has written over ten best selling and award winning books. Death at an Early Age, his first non-fiction book, depicts Kozol's first year as a teacher in the Boston Public Schools. Published in 1967, Death at an Early Age received the 1968 National Book Award in Science, Philosophy, and Religion.

In Kozol's most recent book, Shame of the Nation, he has written with deep respect and empathy for our embattled teachers. Described as a triumph of firsthand reporting, this passionate narrative offers a challenge to our nation to fulfill a promise made some fifty years ago to our youngest citizens.

This event is free and open to the public.
