Date: Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Time: 7:00pm

Dominican University of California along with Book Passage and Alta invite you to their Institute for Leadership Studies series featuring Arlie Russell Hochschild in conversation with KQED's Michael Krasney about her book "Strangers in Their Own Land". In "Strangers in Their Own Land", the renowned sociologist Arlie Hochschild embarks on a thought-provoking journey from her liberal hometown of Berkeley, California, deep into Louisiana bayou country—a stronghold of the conservative right. As she gets to know people who strongly oppose many of the ideas she famously champions, Hochschild nevertheless finds common ground and quickly warms to the people she meets—among them a Tea Party activist whose town has been swallowed by a sinkhole caused by a drilling accident—people whose concerns are actually ones that all Americans share: the desire for community, the embrace of family, and hopes for their children.
