The Nevada Institute for Children’s Research and Policy at UNLV, Children’s Advocacy Alliance, and Every Child Matters invite you to an evening with the bestselling author of Bowling Alone, Dr. Robert Putnam. Dr. Putnam has been described in the New York Times as “… technically a Harvard social scientist, but a better description might be poet laureate of civil society.” Dr. Putnam has served as a consultant for three American presidents, three British prime ministers as well as hundreds of grass roots leaders and advocates in many countries.

At this exclusive event, Dr. Putnam will present findings from his most recent book Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis. A New York Times bestselling book, Our Kids provides a disturbing account of the American dream that is “thoughtful and persuasive” (The Economist).Our Kids offers a rare combination of individual testimony and rigorous evidence: “No one can finish this book and feel complacent about equal opportunity” (The New York Times Book Review).
