After Hours with Eric Klinenberg

After Hours with Eric Klinenberg In-Person

After the Library closes for the night, the Main Reading Room transforms into an intimate venue for community, connection, and learning in the Mill Valley Library's After Hours series. Eric Klinenberg returns to Mill Valley for a special conversation about his new book 2020: One City, Seven People, and the Year Everything Changed. Over the course of 2020, acclaimed sociologist and best-selling author Klinenberg followed seven New Yorkers whose experiences illuminate how Americans, and people across the globe, reckoned with 2020. Through these poignant stories, we revisit our own moments of hope and fear, the profound tragedies and losses in our communities, the mutual aid networks that brought us together, and the social movements that hinted at the possibilities of a better world.

Eric Klinenberg is the Helen Gould Shepard Professor in the Social Sciences and director of the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University. He is the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller Modern Romance and author of Palaces for the People, Going Solo, Heat Wave, and Fighting for Air. He has contributed to The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Wired, and This American Life.
