A book launch in celebration of Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone (Penguin, 2012), by Eric Klinenberg (Professor of Sociology, Public Policy, and Media, Culture, & Communication, NYU; editor of the journal Public Culture

In Going Solo, renowned sociologist and author Eric Klinenberg explores the dramatic rise of solo living and examines the seismic impact it's having on our culture, business, and politics. Conventional wisdom tells us that living by oneself leads to loneliness and isolation, but, as Klinenberg shows, most solo dwellers are deeply engaged in social and civic life.

This event is free and open to the public.  A reception will follow.
