Light refreshments will be served. Meetings are free and open to the public.
Ed O’Donnell, Ph.D., professional historian and Associate Professor of History at Holy Cross College in Worchester, Massachusetts, will speak to us on his new book, “Henry George and the Crisis of Inequality”. Henry George was a late 19th Century reformer in the United States (and Bay Ridge resident) who was deeply troubled by the poverty and social tension he witnessed in a rapidly growing economy whose benefits were being unequally shared. The parallels to today are not exact but given the current economic environment where inequality has again become a political issue, Professor O’Donnell’s talk will be illuminating.
