American journalist, author and New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof will be a speaker in the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research (WIHR) “Think and Drink” series of virtual discussions Thursday, Sept. 17, at 5:30 p.m.
Participants can view the discussion on Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/960820100.
Kristof will discuss the decadeslong shattering of the American dream for many working-class families that has led to a pandemic of despair. Published in 2020, “Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope,” written by Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, will be the focus of the virtual discussion that covers current affairs.
According to The Washington Post, Kristof “rewrote opinion journalism” with his emphasis on human rights abuses and social injustices, such as human trafficking and the Darfur conflict.
