Event description

Description

Is America's democracy and economy broken? This is the very first line of a new book Tailspin from author Steven Brill, but his answer to this question might surprise you.

Join The Century Foundation as we host the first "Think. Drink. Mingle" event of the season and introduce you to some innovators in New York fighting to reverse the nation's tailspin, through education. This event is presented by the Bernard L. Schwartz Rediscovering Government Initiative.

Featuring:

  • Steven Brill, author, Tailspin: The People and Forces Behind America's Fifty-Year Fall - And Those Fighting to Reverse It

  • Jukay Hsu, Founder of C4Q coding school in Queens. C4Q teaches coding and professional skills to talented adults from diverse and low-income backgrounds

  • Moderator: Tina Rosenberg, Pulitzer prize-winning author and journalist for the New York Times


About Think. Drink. Mingle.

Every summer, The Century Foundation hosts a series of events bringing together civically engaged professionals working in NYC to expand their networks and discuss policies that promise to build a better future—all while enjoying a spread of wine and cheese. Whether you’re new to the city, here for the summer, or just really enjoy meeting other incredibly smart people, you’re invited to join us as we share a drink (or two) and discuss issues that matter.
