Join us for lunch as Jonathan Kozol discusses Fire in the Ashes: Twenty-Five Years Among the Poorest Children in America. In this powerful and culminating work, Kozol returns to the scene of his earlier prize-winning books and to the group of inner-city children he has so vividly portrayed in earlier works; here, he shares the fascinating and unexpected story of their life journeys.

Jonathan Kozol is the National Book Award-winning author of Savage Inequalities, Death at an Early Age, The Shame of the Nation, and Amazing Grace.  He has been working with children in inner-city schools for nearly fifty years.
