City Horizons with Amy Goldstein

Janesville, an American story

Amy Goldstein, author of Janesville joined us for City Horizons in October 2018

Event starts at 5.30pm on 3 October 2018 at Dentons, One Fleet Place, London, EC4M 7WS

As part of our series of City Horizons events, we were joined by Washington Post journalist and author Amy Goldstein.

Amy Goldstein’s first book Janesville, published in 2017, is the story of what happens to an industrial town in America’s heartland when its factory shuts down. It is a topic that resonates with industrial towns and cities in the UK where references to being ‘left behind’ have become commonplace. Goldstein will tell the stories that emerged from her study of Janesville, shedding light on the implication for similar cities here and around the Western world.
