By the Book Event :: Feb 03 :: Living on the Edge: An American Generation’s Journey through the Twentieth Century

February 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

living on the edge: book jacketThe authors of Living on the Edge, Richard A. Settersten Jr.Glen H. Elder Jr., and Lisa D. Pearce, are joined in conversation with Stephanie Coontz to discuss their new book!

Drawing from the iconic longitudinal Berkeley Guidance Study, Living on the Edge: An American Generation’s Journey through the Twentieth Century reveals the hopes, struggles, and daily lives of the 1900 generation. Most surprising is how relevant and relatable the lives and experiences of this generation are today, despite the gap of a century. From the reorganization of marriage and family roles and relationships to strategies for adapting to a dramatically changing economy, the challenges faced by this earlier generation echo our own time.

Living on the Edge offers an intimate glimpse into not just the history of our country, but the feelings, dreams, and fears of a generation remarkably kindred to the present day.

Join us for a panel discussion on this timely subject on Wednesday, February 3, at 12PM Eastern. REGISTER HERE.
