Mildred Sainer Pavilion, 5313 Bay Shore Road

Tickets $20; free for New College faculty, staff and students

Reserve online at donate.ncf.edu/events or call 941-487-4888

To get America back on track and reclaim the Dream, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Hedrick Smith says we must restore the middle – the middle class and the political middle. That means understanding how we lost the middle and became Two Americas, divided by money and power. Drawing on his best-selling book, "Who Stole the American Dream?" Smith traces America’s shift from the shared prosperity and bipartisan politics of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, to today's hyper-wealth and democracy in peril.
