Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College 65 West 11th Street Room B500, New York, NY 10003

Barbara Garson: Down the Up Escalator: How the 99% Live in the Great Recession. 

In her latest book, Barbara Garson shows us the real human cost of our economic follies. In praise of her book, George Packer of the New Yorker described her as "an appealing voice: wry, modest, realistic.  She's like a sympathetic but slightly critical friend, ready with a hug and unable not to give advice." Her most famous work, MacBird!, a 1966 counterculture political parody of Macbeth was a runaway hit and one of the most controversial plays of the 1960s.  Her many awards include an OBIE, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a MacArthur Foundation Grant.
