We are excited to welcome to the library Chuck Collins, author of Born on Third Base: A One Percenter Makes the Case for Tackling Inequality, Bringing Wealth Home, and Committing to the Common Good. Collins—the great-grandson of one of America’s iconic industrialists—grew up in the one percent, gave his inheritance away at 26, and became one of the nation’s leading thinkers, writers and activists on solving inequality. Based at the Institute for Policy Studies, his previous books include 99 to 1 and Wealth and Our Commonwealth (with Bill Gates Sr.), and his articles appear in The Nation, The American Prospect, and numerous other magazines and news outlets.
Free and open to all. Refreshments served. For more information, see www.maynardpubliclibrary.org.
