City Talks: Amy Goldstein on the story of Janesville and its response to economic shock

In this episode of City Talks, Andrew Carter is joined by Amy Goldstein, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist at The Washington Post and author of the widely-acclaimed book Janesville: An American Story. Published in 2017, the book charts what happens to an industrial town in the American heartland when its biggest factory closes and offers important lessons about the impact of economic disruption on communities.

Amy will be telling the story of Janesville in person at our next City Horizons event on 3rd October. You can book your place here.
